"'Community' at Thurston First Bank is knowing that the chain of local we've worked so hard to create stays unbroken."
At Olympia Seafood, we know 'fresh'. For over 13 years we've been laser focused on our mission in life - take something that is highly perishable, extremely delicate, very expensive... and keep it fresh. Fresh is our foundation, and we are intimately familiar with the daily (sometimes hourly) tasks and procedures that must be accomplished to maintain that solid foundation. Fresh is not easy, fresh is not half-way, and fresh doesn't forget.
At Olympia Seafood, we also know 'family'. We are a husband/wife ownership team that works closely with commercial fishing family members to connect our community directly with the source. We've been talking business over the coffee pot and around the dinner table for as long as we can remember, and each person that joins the team at Olympia Seafood becomes part of our fishmonger family.
At Olympia Seafood, we know 'community'. In an ever increasing world of global marketing and sales, we find the most value in the common sense theory of 'local food for local people'. We intentionally dedicate our service to the people who make up our local communities, connect them with the finest in nourishing locally caught fish, and count ourselves fortunate to be supported by both customers and fishermen.
Businesses need banks, and after a few years of working with a large, frustrating out-of-state bank we realized that our banking relationship did not reflect our values or the things we had learned. All of the effort and purpose and heart being invested within the walls of our shop was dissolving as our money flowed from the register to the bank and back out again. It was very clearly time to make a change, and Thurston First Bank was very clearly the correct choice.
We see 'fresh' at Thurston First Bank when a real person answers the phone. Fresh is a convenient short drive from our home and business and professional, intelligent, smiling faces that handle our banking needs quickly and efficiently. Fresh is not forgetting when you ask a question and fresh always gets back to you on time.
We see 'family' at Thurston First Bank when we are greeted by name as we walk in the door. Family is chatting about our daughter for a moment, and a piece of chocolate in a pretty dish. Family is a Christmas party on the water and a picture with Santa Claus.
