Local Bank Excited to Celebrate First Branch in Tuscaloosa

Local Bank’s Celebrates Grand Opening

May 1, 2023 – Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Local Bank, recently held its grand opening ceremony to mark the start of its journey as a community-focused bank. The ribbon-cutting event was a celebration, attended by the city of Tuscaloosa, the Chamber of Commerce, Local Bank’s board members and investors, as well as employees, clients, friends, and family. Together, they marked this exciting achievement, welcoming Local Bank.

A special touch was added to the ceremony as one of Local Bank’s board members led the group in a heartwarming prayer, seeking blessings and guidance for the bank as it embarked on its new journey, with proverbs 16:3 being one of the verses quoted. “I believe it is important to start every enduring institution with a prayer and this verse is one of the principles we are following” said the board member.

Scott Christoff, Local Bank’s CEO, spoke about the bank’s rich history in community banking, which began in 1914 when the bank was established as Peoples Bank of Red Level by founders who were committed to putting customers first. The bank was later renamed Local Bank in 2022 to reflect its continued focus on local communities. “We are dedicated to providing exceptional banking services to support the growth of our customers, local businesses, and the community as a whole.” said Christoff

Local Bank’s grand opening event was a huge success, with clients having the opportunity to meet the Local Bank team, learn more about their services, and enjoy refreshments and giveaways. The Local Bank team demonstrated a family-oriented feel, and their dedication was evident.

We are excited to expand our presence in Tuscaloosa and surrounding areas and to continue growing with community-minded bankers who share our values.
