Lead Bank Shines a Spotlight on Retail at their Crossroads Location

Community-focused Bank Celebrates Entrepreneurs and their products and services

KANSAS CITY, MO (November 2017) Lead Bank is proud to announce the launch of its “Grow Home Spotlight” initiative which celebrates and supports Kansas City small businesses. Eager to use its market presence in the Crossroads, the Bank will feature small Kansas City businesses’ products in their flagship location at 1801 Main Street. The Grow Home Spotlight demonstrates the Bank’s ongoing commitment to rally Kansas City around its amazing entrepreneurs.

Lead Bank’s first Grow Home Spotlight business is Terrasi Living & Scandia Home. Community members can now purchase holiday NEST Fragrances candles and reed diffusers, Thymes luxurious body products and even Michael Aram silver frames. Terrasi Living & Scandia Home, the Midwest’s definitive collection of quality European bed linens, sumptuous down goods, hand-crafted furniture, home and table accessories, exclusive organic mattresses, bath and body products, and stylish fashions for lounging and travel, has been a staple on the Country Club Plaza for more than 30 years.

Lead Bankers have been trained on the ins and outs of what makes each retailer’s products and experience special. Bankers learned the inventory and brand message so they can effectively deliver the retail experience that many find when visiting Terrasi Living & Scandia Home. By acquainting themselves with the brand, Bankers can articulate what makes Terrasi Living & Scandia Home such a special, unique business to Kansas City. Patrick Unrein, Lead Bank Crossroads Branch Manager states, “I learned about the business and their products, and our bank staff has been trained on the inventory. We are just officially launching this new program and have already sold four items. Grow Home Spotlight is just one more example of how Lead Bank has truly committed its staff to helping our area businesses grow.”

Ursula Terrasi, owner of Terrasi Living & Scandia Home, enjoyed an extensive career in the financial services industry serving with local, regional and international banks before acquiring her Plaza store. “I am pleased to partner with Lead Bank and appreciate how my bank is showing its commitment to my business’ success,” says Ursula Terrasi.

The decision to feature and sell locally owned products in Lead Bank’s Crossroads location is a natural fit as this partnership is in line with “Grow Home,” the bank’s community outreach campaign. ‘Grow Home’ highlights several Kansas City businesses and their common ground as community-focused small to mid-size businesses. “I don’t believe enough people know the stories of Kansas City businesses. At Lead Bank, we highlight what makes Kansas City great and we support fascinating, fun and beautiful businesses like Terrasi Living & Scandia Home. Our mission is to be at the heart of the success of our communities, which means it is our responsibility, as a bank, to foster the economy of local small businesses. We’re excited to be able to work with Ursula, Terrasi Living & Scandia Home, and to be able to showcase some of her products to everyone in the downtown area" says Joshua Rowland, CEO of Lead Bank.
