    The SBI Queen in Action

    Last updated 9 months ago

    At CBF, we joking refer to Lisa Greer as the "SBI Queen." She earned the name because she is an expert at small business loans and has led our small business initiative to help customers grow their business. Recently the Homestead/Florida City Chamber of Commerce asked her to lend her expertise and be a guest speaker on US Small Business Administration Financing. Lisa explained the different programs offered by the Small Business Administration and why they would help a business owner. Lisa is always available as a resource to business owners, whether they are CBF customers or not. If you're interested in learning more, let us know!

    Spotlight on: REL Men's Wear

    Last updated 9 months ago

    Recently we were in Lakeland visiting business customers. After talking to the owner of REL Men's Wear, we decided to share her story:

    Meet Leah Reas, a true local small business owner. After five years of experience in the fashion industry, Leah decided to open a clothing store. She saw a need in the area for a men’s store that catered to the big and tall. Knowing that times are tough, she decided the clothing needed to be affordable but still fashionable. She consulted with a family friend who was in the business of buying wholesale clothing and there she came up with the idea for Rel Men’s Wear. Customers are offered her styling assistance, so not only are there hard to find sizes, but purchasing a suit or casual clothing becomes easy with Leah’s personal touch.
    Leah says, “Customer service is extremely important. I want people to feel comfortable and have a good experience in my store. It’s the same as the service I get when I visit my bank. They are extremely friendly, very supportive of me and I love that they give back to our community. I will definitely look to them for all my future financial needs.”
    If you're looking for great deals on hard to find men's clothing in the Lakeland area, visit Rel Men’s Wear at 933 S. Florida Ave (across from Reececliff) or call (863) 688-9490.
