"We want residents to remember that when they shop local, they are investing in their own community," says Karen Odle, president of the Chamber of Commerce. "We thought pigs were perfect because they are reminiscent of a piggy bank, or the idea of investing for the future. When residents visit a business with a pig out front, they are shopping local and helping to build a brighter future for Vestavia Hills." Nathan Marcus, owner of an Allstate Insurance agency on Montgomery Highway, was one of the first business owners to bring a Vestavia Hills pig home to his office. His pig, emblazoned with his company's logo, serves as a branding tool for Marcus' business as well as for the city. "We are big supporters of the efforts of the Vestavia Hills Chamber, and we appreciate original ideas," Marcus says. 0 15 , t he Ves t avia Hills I I f Co mmer c e u n v eiled I I , Dine , Play" ini t ia t ive I I w i t h f ou r mem o rable I I s co t s , fiberglass pigs.
