FSB Member Simply Devine

CASE STUDY


Business banking: how it helped our friends in the north



Millinery and accessories designer, Simply Devine, has a strong head for business, thanks to the FSB.

Set up in 2004, Simply Devine is owned and managed by mother and daughter team, Joy Devine and Liz Devine-Wright. The Tadcaster based company is now one of the region's most successful small businesses - and becoming a Co-operative Bank FSB Business Banking customer has made a real difference.

"It's one of the best business decisions we've ever made concerning our small business finance," says Liz.

"We enjoy free banking. We don't pay bank charges for paying money in or taking it out - and The Co-operative Bank even gives us a loyalty bonus every year and monthly interest"

Liz adds that the bank's quality of customer services is excellent. "There is always a knowledgeable person at the other end of the phone and when we've used foreign payments, staff have always been extremely helpful."
