Hometown Banks Still Serving the Public

The COVID-19 pandemic we find ourselves living with has changed our way of life and that of our local businesses.
Governor Mike Parson gave the official “Stay at Home” order last Friday, ordering everyone to shelter in place at home to help prevent exposure and spread of the disease.
Our local hometown banks are essential businesses, and therefore, are still open to serve you with all of your banking needs.
Both F&C Bank and Central Bank have adjusted their ways of serving the public, and are taking necessary precautions during this difficult time.
F&C Bank employees are doing their part to limit the spread and exposure of the coronavirus. They are continually disinfecting common surfaces, tellers are using gloves when handling currency, their lobby is closed, and they are offering drive-thru services only.
Their hours continue to be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the drive-thru, and they are offering limited lobby access for services that cannot be done in the drive-thru.
These services include loan closings and account openings, among other  essential banking business.
F&C encourages their customers to call for assistance or use the digital banking services that are available.
“Taking care of our customers and employees is very important to us and we appreciate everyone’s continued trust and patience while we navigate this unprecedented and constantly changing situation,” said President and CEO Robert E. Mickey.
Central Bank is also still offering drive-thru services to its customers, as well as setting appointments for critical banking business in their lobby.
“Our strong roots throughout our communities mean we are here for you,” say Central Bank staff.
“With a limitation to our facilities during this time, we want to remind all of our customers that you can still access your accounts with our digital banking tools 24/7.”
The public is reminded if you have not enrolled in online or mobile banking, they are happy to assist, or you can do so at…/online-mobile/mobile-banking/.
If a customer does need access to a branch, please tell an associate at the drive-thru or call ahead to make an appointment. They will be happy to assist you.

So, although the way of doing business might be a little different at your hometown banks, bank associates are still working hard to take care of all of your banking needs.
This is a dark, difficult time in our world, but we’re all in this together and if we stand together, abide by social distancing guidelines, and practice precaution when we leave our homes, we can make a huge difference in the outcome of the pandemic’s lasting repercussions in Missouri.
