We want to inform you about an important change that is taking place at The Peoples Bank.

Our customers have come to expect the best and easiest banking experience from us, and we've worked hard to deliver on that expectation. Over the years, we have developed some of the best electronic and remote banking services available to consumers today and customers have responded by using them more and more each day! The added convenience and ease of transacting business without needing to come into a branch has become so popular that it has notable reduced the usage of our Newark Road location. To continue to meet our goal of delivering better service to you, as well as continuing to offer the state-of-the-art banking products you are looking for, we will be closing this location effective April 15, 2021. If you would like to come in to an office there are two locations within close proximity that we hope you will visit.


Effective April 15, 2021, we will be closing our location at 1051 Newark Road. This office has experience greatly reduced usage and can no longer operate efficiently. Customers currently using this branch can bank in person at the following convenient, close-by alternatives:

Our Main Office located at 103 East Wiggin Street in Gambier is only 5 miles from our 1051 Newark Road office and our Upper Gilchrist Road Branch at 11423 Upper Gilchrist Road in Mount Vernon is only 5 miles away.
