What You Need to Know to Shop Local Safely This Holiday Season

This holiday season, we encourage you to shop local and stay safe.

We know this year has been challenging. Luckily, the holiday season is officially here, even if it looks a bit different this year! Black Friday, Shop Small Saturday, and Cyber Monday are right around the corner. The COVID-19 Pandemic has interfered with many traditions, but Black Friday sales live on. When you're shopping this holiday season, we want you to score great deals all while staying safe and abiding by CDC guidelines.

Here's a few tips to remember:

  • Stay home if you are sick or experiencing any COVID like symptoms.
  • Use online services when available.
  • Wear your mask - especially when keeping a six foot distance is hard to maintain.
  • Use hand sanitizer when leaving stores.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you get home.
  • Avoid large gatherings and crowds as much as possible.
  • Limit your contact with cash and/or use contactless payment methods in stores.

Many of your local stores have struggled this year due to the pandemic. If you are going to shop, help your community by simply shopping small, especially on Shop Small Saturday. Most businesses now offer online shopping options or curbside pick-up. Make sure to subscribe to your favorite businesses' social media pages to stay up-to-date on what's new!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a land loan?

    A land loan provides you with financing to secure a lot of land and cover the costs for up to 20 years. With Listerhill, you can get a loan on unimproved land. 

    Once you’re ready to build, you can secure a different type of loan to cover construction costs.

  • Who is a HELOC best for?

    If you aren’t sure how much you’ll need to borrow or when you'll need it, a Home Equity Line of Credit is a great option. Access ongoing cash for a set period of up to 10 years with low minimum payments until your withdrawal period is complete. Contrary to a Home Equity Loan, the interest on a HELOC is a variable rate and may be impacted by the status of the economy.

  • Who is a Home Equity Loan best for?

    If you’re the type of person who takes a big-picture view when planning your financial decisions, a home equity loan may make the most sense. Since you’re borrowing a fixed amount at a fixed rate, you can plan how much you’ll pay for the loan in the long run from day one.

  • What can home equity loans be used for?

    Home equity loans provide you with the opportunity to chase dreams to the fullest. Enjoy a vacation with the whole family, invest in a household remodeling project, or even finance an upcoming vehicle purchase with only a few clicks.  If you can dream it, you can achieve it!

  • What type of requirements exist for home equity loans?

    Home equity loans rely on a loan to value ratio (LTV) to disburse funds, meaning that your credit score and home equity value should be fairly substantial to take advantage of all possible benefits. For assistance in the home equity loan pre-approval process, please speak with your local Listerhill Credit Union branch.
