Farrel Holyoak, President/ CEO of the Stockmen's Bank, announced the opening of the bank's newly-constructed branch building located in the Sawmill Crossing shopping plaza in Payson.
The branch has been operating in a temporary facility in the plaza since March.
"The Payson community has welcomed our bank and our personalized style of banking," stated Holyoak.
"We are pleased to have our staff relocated and serving our customers in the new branch site. The building looks great. It features a drive-through window, ATM, and night depository. In addition, we now offer safe deposit boxes."
Pat Willis, Payson branch manager and resident for six years, said, "I am proud to be part of an organization that supports the many communities in which it is located to the extent The Stockmen's Bank does.
"Not long after joining the bank, I submitted a request for a donation to the Payson Veterans' Memorial. The bank responded with a generous donation to this worthy cause, and that was before the branch even opened its doors in the temporary location.
"I was sure Payson would welcome this Arizona-based community bank, and my neighbors and business associates have not disappointed me."
The Stockmen's Bank has been operating since 1980, beginning with one branch in Kingman.
Today the bank has grown to over $500 million in assets operating a total of 39 branches; 30 in Arizona and nine in California, mostly located in rural communities.
The Payson community is invited to stop by to see the new branch building during business hours of 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday.
