Meet local merchants and people you want to do business with and who want to do business with you.

WBA Members are people who own and operate businesses right here in the Village of Whiting or nearby Manchester Township. Most of us are not big corporations - rather we are small, locally owned "Mom & Pop" operations, who have "old time" values.

We are store front owners, health care, financial, and legal professionals, contractors and other services providers. We often know the people who walk through our doors - and they know us. We understand and cater to the needs of our customers, and offer them value, courtesy and personalized service with their best interest in mind. Today there are more than 30 Members belonging to our Association and our membership is growing.

The WBA recently added some new Members from larger corporations, such as Applebee's, Stop & Shop, Walgreens and Wells Fargo Bank. ALL of these larger companies have joined our small business owners in being extraordinarily generous in providing services and food for our events. And ALL of our members continue to offer you the personal care you deserve and the convenience you need.

We want you to get to know us just as much as we want to get to know you and provide you with the very best products and services, attention and value as we possibly can. So we thought it would be a nice idea to "put a face to a name" for those visitors to our site who haven't yet met many of our Members. Member pictures are in alphabetical order (by first name) right above and below. Note that when you move your mouse over a picture that individual's name and Business will pop up!

Note If you see a small hand: when you mouse over an image click your mouse to learn more about a member's business You can return to this page by clicking on the "back" arrow or on the "meet our members" link at the bottom of that page.
