The VCNB financial family is growing! We are excited to welcome the customers and employees of The Citizens Bank of Ashville to VCNB.
VCNB and Community Bancshares, Inc. have announced the completed acquisition of The Citizens Bank of Ashville, effective the close of business on Friday.
The offices, located in Ashville, Circleville, Grove City and Commercial Point, enlarge the VCNB footprint and provide VCNB customers a total of seventeen locations for their banking needs. When they opened today, the Ashville, Circleville and Commercial Point branches began operations as Pickaway County Banking Center. The Grove City location now operates as Franklin County Banking Center.
As our family grows, we have been reflective about our origins and the core values that make us who we are.
We were founded in McArthur, Ohio in 1867. As a community bank, we take pride in adopting community identities everywhere we do business. This is evidenced in a variety of ways, starting with the names of our local branches and extending through community support initiatives and substantial employee volunteerism efforts.
Because we are a community bank, decisions are made locally. The loan officers, tellers and new accounts representatives you interact with daily live in your community and have a stake in the wellbeing, not just of the bank but of the people and towns where we do business. Our Customer Service Department is located in McArthur and the people you reach by phone or by online chat are invested in giving great customer service.
In short, we love our communities!
As you may imagine, there is a lot of work and detail involved in acquiring a bank and bringing those customers and employees into the VCNB family. That’s why we have created a Welcome Guide to help our new customers through the process.
If you are a new VCNB customer, WELCOME ABOARD! We are excited to have you with us and eager to get to know you. For the most part, the employees you are accustomed to seeing in your local offices haven’t changed. We may make some physical changes in the offices but you will receive the same great service you are accustomed to and deserve.
For now, our new Citizens customers will be able to bank and receive customer service assistance just in Ashville, Grove City, Commercial Point and Circleville. Starting on January 20, 2015, you will be able to bank at any of our seventeen locations.
You will be also hearing from us more over the next few months and hope you will feel welcome to contact us if you have questions.
Our existing customers can begin banking in the new locations today. We now have seventeen offices in Vinton, Ross, Hocking, Fairfield, Licking, Pickaway and Franklin counties.
