Southern Bancorp planning Gluckstadt branch
An Arkansas-based bank is slated to bring a new location to the Lucky City in early 2024, bank officials say.
Bank spokesman Dustin Jayroe said dconstruction crews have prepared the land and Southern Bancorp expects to open the new branch in Spring of 2024.
The branch is currently slated for a spot on Calhoun Station Parkway between Sullivan’s Grocery and Callway’s Yard and Garden. The building was designed by Durrell Design Group.
There are currently locations in Madison on Main Street and in Canton on East Peace Street. Southern Bancorp’s footprint now includes 56 locations across Arkansas and Mississippi.
“We’re excited to be adding another Southern Bancorp location in Mississippi, a state in which we have proudly served our unique brand of banking for many years,” said Darrin Williams, CEO of Southern Bancorp, Inc. “As a community development bank, we see our work as fundamental to the strength of our local economies, and as a mission-focused financial institution, we serve our markets with a purpose to ensure financial access and opportunity are within reach of everyone.”
