Chase moves in downtown

Two big red trucks rolled into Plainfield this morning and pulled up at the newly constructed office building on Park between Front and Second. Workers began unloading office furniture; the sign in the window says "coming soon."

The Plaintalker hasn't been able to learn just when Plainfield's first branch of Chase Bank will open, but this looks like progress.

We wonder what the come-on will be to get new business: toasters, gym bags with logos, umbrellas?

We have plenty of those "incentives," but do we hear free checking?
