Area’s second-largest business story for 2013: Umpqua buys Sterling Bank

Today's post: The No. 2 business story of the year for the Spokane North Idaho area.

Last week we posted No. 3, the widespread credit card breach connected to area grocery stores.

No. 2 is the acquisition of Spokane's largest home-based bank, Sterling Financial by Oregon-based Umpqua Bank. Our earlier story on the acquisition ran on Sept. 11, 2013.

Tomorrow, Dec. 31, we list the No. 1 business story for 2013.  Because of our pick-the-top-story contest, the final story will determine who wins the SR OfficeHours $10 coffee card.
