Royal Bank used their ‘girl-next-door’ advertising persona “Mary” to promote Chargex, a subtle reassurance to consumers wondering whether this new way of managing money was for them. “Mary” of the Royal Bank was a successful advertising strategy that linked bank services to a personality. She was featured in print, radio and television advertisements from 1968 to 1976.

Photos from the Canadian and Gazette files from the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum-Recognize anyone?
Norma Ford-– Yes, St. Andrews Church basement. The CP Hospital ladies put on a luncheon every year, always well attended and fantastic food. There were usually two seatings, (12 and 1 pm) all the staff at RBC attended every year. Miss those great meals. Usually roast beef and that gravy – wow.
