Bank In Bureau County Closing

Posted by wlpo on July 2, 2012

A bank in the area is closing in a couple months.

Citizens First State Bank in Ohio will close September 10th.  A letter went out to bank members last month that said rising operating costs and the poor economy are to blame.  The Ohio bank had already cut back staff and hours.

There are also Citizens First State Bank branches in Walnut and Wyanet.

It’s been a tough year for the Ohio bank.  In October, it was robbed of nearly eight thousand dollars.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
