To our valued Choice Bank customers—
As things continue to rapidly evolve and more preventative measures are being taken against COVID-19, we have made changes to procedures, that may impact the way you typically conduct your banking with us. These decisions were not made lightly but were done in accordance with social-distancing recommendations and our continued commitment to ensure the safety of our employees, customers and communities.
We are very fortunate that we have sound resources to keep our organization up and running. You can rest assured between, remote work capabilities and rotation of staff we are prepared to service from anywhere!
The following changes will take effect on Wednesday, March 18, 2020:
- In-Bank Deposits and Transactions
Effective immediately, all locations will only be accepting deposits/transactions through our Drive-Up (where available) and our Night Drop boxes. You can access a full list of our Drive-Up and Night Drop locations on our website HERE. Our Night Drop locations will be collected regularly during normal business hours. If your banking needs are better served through an in-person meeting, please contact your nearest Choice Bank location to schedule an appointment.

Businesses in need of a change order can contact their nearest Choice Bank location to place an order and schedule a pick-up time. You can find a list of all bank locations on our website HERE.

A list of all our locations can be found on our website HERE.
