Collinsville Bank celebrates its Farmington location
With much excitement and weathering some unforeseen delays, Collinsville Bank, once known as Collinsville Savings Society, opened its doors for the very first time in Farmington Feb. 27 after servicing the communities of Collinsville, Canton and neighboring towns for over 167 years.
The move brought experience in retail and commercial banking as well as consumer and commercial lending, cash management services and impeccable customer service.
For three weeks the bank was welcomed by new and existing customers into the community as it waited to celebrate a Grand Opening in March.
Unfortunately, Collinsville Bank would need to close its doors for more than three months due to the pandemic. The bank was not alone as the nation came to a halt. Though our doors were closed, we continued to service customers using all resources that we could in delivering the service that Collinsville Bank is so noted for with little to no disruption to their everyday banking needs.
On Wednesday Sept. 9, the bank finally made its presence in Farmington official with a very small and intimate gathering for our Ribbon Cutting. It gave us great pleasure to have amongst our guests, representation from three local non-profit organizations that are instrumental to the Farmington community. The representatives each were presented with a check in the amount of $1,000. These organizations were The Farmington Land Trust, The Farmington Community Chest and Services for the Elderly of Farmington.
Today the doors are opened and employees are welcoming new neighbors in Farmington and surrounding towns to visit as they try to get used to our new normal by installing social distancing markers, and the wearing of masks.
Visit the bank in Post Office Square, 186 Main St., Farmington, CT 06032 or at www.collinsvillebank.com.
