Farmers Bank & Trust has opened its second full-service branch in Saline County. Located at 3345 Highway 5 North in Bryant/Benton, AR, the Bank completely remodeled the former Crush Wine & Spirits building.
“This location is perfect for us because it’s close to both Benton and Bryant, and we will be able to serve both markets,” Kent McClure, Bryant Market President, said. “This area is booming, and we want to be a part of it.”
The new building will provide full teller, account and loan services, a drive-thru, and a notary. In addition, there will also be a MyFarmers iTeller Interactive Teller Machine with live teller services available from 7 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday, and 8 am to 3 pm on Saturday, with 24/7 ATM services.
“We’ve adopted a more modern approach to banking,” Joe Pieratt, Chief Operating Officer, said. “I think you will notice that when you walk into our new branch. The teller pods offer an opportunity to really connect with our customers.”
The Bryant/Benton branch team will include Kent McClure, Market President; Elizabeth Anderson, Business Development Officer; Jordan Irby, Commercial Loan Officer; Eric Shelnut, Mortgage Loan Originator; Allie Stokes, Branch Supervisor; Vanessa Perez, Retail Banker; Hannah Wolf, Retail Banker; Kayla Ray, Retail Banker; Emilee Neal, Loan Assistant; and Cara Knight, Marketing Specialist.
The public is invited to visit the new branch to open accounts, speak to a loan officer, or receive assistance with any banking needs Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. A grand opening and ribbon cutting celebration for the location will be postponed until the spring to follow COVID-19 safety measures.
