(Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) The teller window at Whalebone Cafe Bank in Shadyside looks a lot like an ice cream counter.
That’s because it is.
The start-up operation is the brainchild of Ethan Clay, the owner of Oh Yeah! ice cream and coffee shop on Highland Avenue, where he recently started his own version of a community bank.
Mr. Clay, who sees his bank as a way to offer local residents low-cost banking services, doesn’t have many depositors yet. But he has drawn the attention of state banking regulators, who late Wednesday said they’ll be moving to shut him down.
