The Buck Stays Here

Support local businesses and nonprofits.

When you see a business displaying The Buck Stays Here decal, you know that business is locally owned and operated. And when you support local businesses, you’re recirculating money in our community to create a stronger, more prosperous economy. So please look to local businesses first. Let’s keep the bucks here every day and all year long.

Chesapeake Bank has made it easy for you to preview the participating businesses and nonprofits. Choose a region and then a category like Art & Antiques or Clothing & Accessories. Print your list and refer to it when you need to make a purchase, select a service provider, or want to make a contribution to a local nonprofit.

Be sure to check back often to view new businesses and nonprofits participating in The Buck Stays Here initiative.

If you have questions or need additional help, please call Chesapeake Bank at 800-434-1181 or email
