First State Bank Celebrates New Branch in Clinton Township
Macomb-county based First State Bank (FSB) officially opened the doors to its newest location with the welcoming help of area dignitaries and the Sterling Heights Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on January 14th. The new location in Clinton Township, doubles as a full-service branch and Loan Center providing area residents and businesses with a broad portfolio of banking technologies and solutions backed by their renowned friendly service. With multiple branches in Macomb County, including a recently opened location in Sterling Heights, the grand opening expands FSB’s reach and deepens the bank’s local roots, which date back to 1917 with its first location in Halfway Village (now Eastpointe).
Located in the former Cheli’s Chili restaurant on Hayes Road, north of 18 Mile Road, the branch offers convenient and accessible banking options and hours, open Monday through Saturday with extended drive-up hours on Thursday and Fridays. FSB customers can have anytime banking access through the on-site ATM -- without the need for deposit slips or envelopes -- in addition to a 43,000 surcharge-free nationwide ATM network. Or customers may utilize the bank’s state-of-the-art technologies including online and mobile banking with mobile deposit. FSB’s Loan Center is staffed with knowledgeable representatives readily available to assist with both personal and business loan offerings. As the only Macomb County Preferred Lender under the SBA Preferred Lender Program, FSB can notonly provide area expertise, but prompt and local decision making during the loan process. That local advantage has resulted in $194,0000,000 in local commercial loans in 2013 alone.
“There’s no question that people are the heart of our community bank,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Gene Lovell. “We’re committed to serving our community because we’re committed to taking care of our community. Our success is directly tied to that of our area neighborhoods and businesses that surround us. And being a locally-owned bank that people have trusted for nearly one hundred years, is a true testament to the way we do business.”
First State Bank was named “Best Bank” by Macomb Daily readers consecutively in 2012 and 2013.
