A business that has been in downtown Fort Scott for over 60 years has received an update in the form of a remodel.
The original City State Bank downtown building was constructed in 1957.
It needed an update, said John Hill, president and CEO of the bank.
“The new drive-thru and ATM allow us to better serve our customers who drive larger vehicles.,” Hill said. “The remodel reflects the type of service we are trying to give our existing and new customers in Fort Scott. It also shows our commitment to downtown.”
There will be a Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting and grand reopening on Feb. 7 at 5 p.m.
The bank is located at 202 Scott Avenue.
“The inside is completely remodeled with a new layout that includes new flooring, teller desk, furniture, lighting and décor,” Hill said.
The outside facelift includes new stone, stucco, drive-thru canopy, a new island ATM, sidewalks and lighting.
The remodel started in August 2018 and was completed by January 2019.
LaForge and Budd Construction Company, Inc of Parsons, Kansas was the general contractor.
In addition, “We used many local vendors and contractors,” working of the project, Hill said.
The bank can be reached at 223-2419 for the downtown branch, or 223-1600 at the 1012 Hwy. 69 branch.
