Be the first to know when the Gingerbread Branch opens its doors. Follow us on social media and get an inside look at how we’re bringing the PNC Christmas Price Index® and “The Twelve Days of Christmas” to life.
The PNC Christmas Price Index® is a simple, yet entertaining way to introduce basic economics to classrooms around the country. By pricing out each gift from “The Twelve Days of Christmas” year after year, we are able to provide a snapshot of our current economy, lessons on inflation and other economic trends.
This year, we wanted to give the Index a new home. So we created the Gingerbread Branch: the world’s first real-life bank made out of gingerbread, where the 12 gifts will be brought to life like never before. If you’re in the Philadelphia area, come visit the branch at Penn’s Landing, Dec 4 – 6, or take a virtual tour with your students at PNCGingerbreadBranch.com. Learning about the economy has never tasted so good!
