In 1953 we started providing financial services to the employees of the grocery wholesaler, Associated Grocers. Originally chartered as a credit union, we continued to expand our products and services over the years. We now serve almost 15,000 households and businesses through six retail branches and one loan production office. Our Bank now manages more than $478 million in total loans – including our Fannie Mae portfolio - and our clients maintain more than $444 million in total deposits. Loan products include consumer, residential and business products for individuals and businesses in our region.
If you’re looking for a local bank with all of the accounts and services plus leading edge technology we are here for you. We have a commitment to personal service and making all your banking needs easy, accessible and transparent. We hope you’ll take a look around our site. Let us put our years of experience and superior service to work for you.
