The 2014 Consumer Fair was held once again at the Richland Mall. Over 30 organizations participated in the annual presentations this year, including (but not limited to) Citizens Bank, The Domestic Violence Shelter, Mechanics Bank, Richland County American Red Cross, ESOP, and more. 

 

The consumer fair is held annually in honor of National Consumer Protection Week, and covers a variety of topics designed to help keep you (and your wallet) safe, ranging from identity theft, to credit protection, and even some side attractions such as an activity called "Finances 101" that will test patrons on how they handle everyday finance situations.

 

"This is the fifth year we've been doing (the fair)," said Laurie Hamrick. "We're looking forward having everybody come out, and check out the different information you can get."
