First National Bank to close Jenkins office in July

First National Bank of Walker announced it will be closing its Jenkins office on July 11.

The Jenkins office was purchased from Woodland Bank in June of 2012. First National Bank of Walker and Lakes State Bank are affiliated banks through the common ownership of the holding company, Walker Banco. The holding company reported it feels the Jenkins building could be better utilized in the alternate location of Baxter, where it will be relocated and opened as a Lakes State Bank office this fall.

The banks have entered into an Interbank Customer Service Agreement, which will allow the Jenkins customers of First National Bank of Walker to conduct their banking business at the Pequot Lakes office of Lakes State Bank starting July 14.

Bank customers also have the option to bank at any of the other First National Bank of Walker offices in Backus, Hackensack, Walker, Longville, Remer and Akeley.

Current Jenkins employees will be working in the Lakes State Bank office in Pequot Lakes once the Jenkins office is closed.
