Lynne Hammatt: My name is Lynne, and I own Lily’s Diner in Chatham.
Well, we’re primarily breakfast and lunch.
We’re open from 7 to 2.
We do do a few nights a week.
It’s all, honest to goodness, homemade food.
We don’t buy anything premade.
I love to cook. I love to cook for friends and family.
It’s a fabulous feeling.
I mean, the satisfaction of customers and all that. There’s nothing like it.
The Coop was instrumental in me being able to buy Lily’s.
I have always been responsible for a lot of people, like, you know, my parents, my husband’s mother.
I think that one day I went in and opened 23 accounts.
You know, if you want to look a different banks, wouldn’t you go where the people treated you how you wanted to be treated, how you would treat them?
That’s the most important.
So, that’s why I bank at The Coop – the people.
