The Board of Directors, Officers and staff of The Commercial Bank are in the process of preparing for a complete renovation of our Bank building at 100 Moody Street.
The above sketch is our architect’s vision of how the exterior will look after completion. This is also going to be a total remodel of our interior. The only room that will not be changed is our Vault!
We wish to communicate to our customers and our community, the general plan of our approach to this process . Our architect told us that the construction time could be shortened if we could totally turn the entire building over to the contractors. So, in order to speed up the construction process, we will temporarily move our entire operation into the adjacent building which the Bank also owns. This is the former location of WhipperWheel. You may have noticed the activity that has been going on in there during the last two weeks as we have been getting it ready for our move.
The safety of our staff and our customers and visitors is extremely important to us and this move into temporary quarters will allow us to provide a safer location for our day-to-day business.
However, we do anticipate that certain customer services will be temporarily inaccessible, such as the Drive-thru window and Safe Deposit Box vault. We want to assure our customers that it is our sincere goal to keep those phases as short term as humanly possible. We are currently thinking of innovative ways to provide alternate means of service for our Drive thru customers. We also will make every effort to accommodate and provide “safe” access to the Safe Deposit Box vault.
It is our hope that our customers and our community will be as excited about this renovation as we are.
Renovation should begin in summer of 2012.
