The sale of the Emporia branch of Marion National Bank to Citizens State Bank of Gridley was completed July 10 in a transaction that works to the benefit of both banks.
“Our bank is in great shape,” MNB President Jim Hefley said. “We’re focusing on the Marion market. We have strong capital, we’re growing, and we pride ourselves in our customer service. We hope they continue to take care of our customers just like we did.”
CSB has branches in Coffey, Greenwood, Osage, and Lyon counties, and is finalizing the purchase of Exchange National Bank in Cottonwood Falls. The Emporia branch gives CSB a presence in a city that serves as a regional economic center for east central Kansas.
