On April 1, First State Bank of Colorado will open a full service bank on Delta's Main Street. The building at 564 Main Street has been occupied by First State Bank since January 2008, but it's been used as a loan production office pending Federal Reserve approval.
That approval has finally arrived, and the bank is gearing up to offer customers a full array of services, from loans to investment vehicles to online banking.
Market president Chuck Vincent, customer service representative Mandi Ahlberg and two tellers will offer friendly, personal and professional service.
Vincent has been in the banking industry locally for 36 years, including three at the First State Bank of Colorado location in Hotchkiss. His roots in the community are nearly as deep as those of the bank, which has served Delta County for over 80 years.
Vincent understands relationships are key in a competitive industry like banking. All banks offer essentially the same products, he explains, so the only way a bank can distinguish itself is in how it treats its customers. "Banking is all about people," he says.
At all four of its Delta County locations, First State Bank of Colorado prides itself on "first-name-basis" service and consistent support of, and involvement in, community projects and organizations.
Customers will enjoy the convenience of an additional location, because now they can conduct their banking business at any First State Bank of Colorado office as if it were their own hometown office. In addition, the network of five Delta County ATMs allows convenient no-fee access to accounts when accessed through a First State Bank of Colorado Visa debit card.
Vincent said they're still putting the finishing touches on business hours, but the lobby will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, with extended hours for the drive-through Friday evenings and Saturday mornings.
A grand opening celebration is planned for late April. In the meantime, stop in and say hi to the familiar faces that have long been part of the Delta community.blog comments powered by Disqus
