CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#SMBsCambridge Savings Bank (CSB), a full-service mutual bank with a customer-first approach and nearly $7 billion in assets, today announced that its Asset-Based Lending (ABL) team has provided a $10.5 million credit facility to Stauer, a direct marketing retailer offering consumers affordable jewelry, watches, accessories, and collectibles with a satisfaction guarantee.
