Gloucester Point, Suntrust Bank

Here is the Gloucester Point Sun Trust Bank. I have banked with them for many years and the service is just top notch. The folks have gone way out of their way for me on numerous occasions. Technically speaking this is not an endorsement as the bank does not allow interviews or press without a corporate spokesperson. All the big companies are this way, but that won't stop us from speaking our mind anyway.

This is the first bank in Gloucester County when you come over the Coleman bridge and is on the left hand side on the corner at the first stop light in the county. So access in and out is very easy. The Sun Trust Bank Web Site.

Coming Soon, Tips and Tricks

A new feature we are adding this year is called tips and tricks and is a feature designed to help you get more out of life and more for your money. We discovered a new trick today that led to this feature being brought to you. We just need to take a few pictures of our new trick and we will save you some money right off the back once you read and take advantage of the information. We'll try to get it on here as soon as possible.

Short Lane Ice Cream Video

Here is a great video for the Short Lane Ice Cream Shop here in Gloucester, Virginia. This is a great example of socially engineered marketing and the video has the best reasons to visit this shop. I know I plan on taking the family there. They also put up a few other videos on YouTube which I may bring to this site in the future. We will have an update on this store in the future after we visit.
