RIPLEY – A bank got its start in the Ripley community as First Neighborhood Bank opened a branch on South Church Street this week.

The bank, established 110 years ago in the Mid-Ohio Valley, is originally from Spencer and over the years has grown with Ripley, the site of its fourth branch.

“Their objective was to create a community bank that could offer the same services as the large banking conglomerates, but on a more personal scale” the First Quarter website said. “Today, our (four) offices still maintain the same mission of providing superior service to our clients.”

Because it is a local bank, all decisions are made by people who live and work in the community.

“The opening this week of a fourth location is another reminder of the bank’s continued promise to support and invest in the communities we serve,” David Righter, president of First National Bank said.

The people of Ripley with a wide variety of experience will provide bully and loan services. FNB also offers FirstTouch online banking, home and business loans.

This year, the ETF’s website has been updated to present “A fresh and refined design, more user-friendly and intuitive than ever”, according to an FNB press release. The new site also offers an improved mobile experience via a smartphone or tablet.

The Ripley branch lobby is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and drive-thru is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

“We are thrilled to be involved in the Jackson County community, as we have been in our other communities,” Nikki Romeo, branch manager for Ripley’s office, said.
