As Williston grows and expands at an amazing pace, we’re proud to open our third location: this one is at the intersection of 9th Avenue and West Dakota Parkway. We think it’s also a perfect time to celebrate our 103rd year in business!
You’re invited to celebrate our Grand Opening and 103rd Anniversary. Here are the details:
Open house: 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.
Ribbon-cutting: 11 a.m.
1331 9th Ave. NW
We’ll serve cookies, cake and coffee, and we’ll have free gifts and tours available.
Here’s peek inside our new Williston bank location:
Six years in the making
The Grand Opening is almost exactly one year from our ground-breaking for the new Williston bank, but our expansion plans actually began in 2006. At that time, we considered remodeling our downtown location to accommodate our growth, but we opted to build this new bank. As it turns out, the timing was perfect. Some estimates say Williston’s population may double in the next few years.
Our office spaces and especially our staff members are perfectly positioned to handle all this new growth, both in terms of taking care of existing customers and serving new ones with all our banking, trust, insurance and investment services.
Of course, our other two locations will remain open. Existing customers will notice familiar faces at all our Williston banks, along with some new tellers, loan officers, investment and insurance representatives and support staff members. It’s exciting to welcome new members to our teams.
Please join our Grand Opening on May 10 if you can. Or, stop in when you’re nearby. We’re excited to share our new space, and especially eager to serve you.
