2015 PNC Christmas Price Index

Learning about the economy has never tasted so good

Welcome to the Gingerbread Branch: the world’s first life-size bank made of real gingerbread, and home of this year’s PNC Christmas Price Index®. The branch opened its doors from December 4-6 in Penn’s Landing, Philadelphia, where thousands of visitors experienced “The Twelve Days of Christmas” like never before. And while the branch is now closed, there are still plenty of ways to relive the world’s most delicious bank.
