UmpquaThis week’s show location was at the Umpqua (yes, you read that right) Bank, 2801 N. Ventura Rd, not far from The Collection.  They are named after the Umpqua River in Oregon, site of an ancient native American settlement. UMPQUA VP Stacy Peterson told us that they are a division of Sterling, now have about 100 community banking locations in California and specialize in commercial business lending, but do other loans as well. The branch loves visItors and offers  free coffee and sometimes, donuts. It’s right on the way to the Collection, so it’s convenient. It’s also the only bank we’ve been to with a dog dish on the floor.
