Welcome to the Town of Ericson and Surrounding Communities!
Farmers & Merchants Bank is pleased to announce it will be opening its 12th location in the former Ericson State Bank building at 427 Central Ave in Ericson, Nebraska. The Bank already has plans in place to create a seamless transition for the community.
“We’re a small-town bank and the needs of our customers and communities are always our top priority,” said Gerry Dunlap, President and CEO of Farmers & Merchants Bank. “We have very high standards when it comes to customer service. Above and beyond is what we do every day.”
It is a positive turn of events for the town of Ericson. Ericson State Bank employees will be retained, so customers will continue to see familiar faces when they walk in the door. In addition, Farmers & Merchants Bank has assumed all of the deposits of Ericson State Bank, which means all insured deposits are safe.
The new ownership will bring excellent customer service, helpful financial products and advice, plus online banking and advanced mobile technology to the community. Farmers & Merchants Bank offerings will include 20-year fixed-rate real estate loans and competitive checking account options. Our easy-to-use Mobile Banking App allows customers to deposit checks with a smartphone, transfer money from debit card to debit card or to an account at another bank, and to “turn off” a debit card for security reasons. All in all, the acquisition is a win-win for Ericson!
“If you have any questions or concerns, we’re here for you. I’m here for you,” Gerry emphasized. “We are proud to be a part of Ericson and already feel welcomed.”
Farmers & Merchants Bank is a family-owned, chartered institution with a rich history going back to the M.W. Dunlap family in 1921. Rooted in Nebraska, it is a financial cornerstone of many of our state’s fine communities.
