Citizens National Bank of Corsicana held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday to begin construction of its new branch office at 400 W. Collin St., the site of bank’s main office before it acquired the local Bank of America branch in January 2015.
“We plan to be in the new building by March 31 of next year,” said Christina Janecka, senior vice president and regional manager. “It will be a two-story, almost 10,000-square-foot facility. We will have six drive-through lanes large enough to accommodate dually trucks hauling cattle trailers. That was something for which the community expressed a need.”
Janecka said the bank will be on the first floor and the trust department will be on the second.
The new facility will allow Citizens National Bank to combine its main office at 100 N. Main St. and drive-through at 209 N. 12th St. The College Park Mall location will not be affected.
“It’s very exciting, not just for our Corsicana bank, but for our whole company,” said Brad Tidwell, president and CEO. “Corsicana and Navarro County are really a great market for us and being able to invest in the area is a dream come true. We wanted to make a statement and create an even bigger presence and that’s what we are doing.”
The new branch was announced during a December 2016 Business After Hours reception at the bank’s Downtown Corsicana branch.
