We are losing a bank in Bismarck.

A running joke in Bismarck Mandan is that every time a new business is opening up that it's going to be a new bank.  Apparently, people have the impression we have too many banks in Bismarck Mandan.  Maybe the residents of Bismarck Mandan just have way too much money.

Choice Bank in Bismarck has decided to close one of its two locations in Bismarck, North Dakota.

A letter from the Choice Bank that was sent to their customers says the closing was primarily based on reduced traffic to the location over the past 18 months.

The location that is closing is the north location at 1313 Skyline Boulevard in Bismarck. 

The bank will close its doors for good effective December 30th, 2022.

Choice Bank went on to say in the letter they will be able to better serve their customers from their larger Front Avenue location in Bismarck.

The other Choice Bank location that will continue operating is located at 207 East Front Avenue in Bismarck.  The bank wanted to assure all of its customers that there will be no change to their account numbers, terms, or other features.

There is one thing I'm not comprehending.

I guess the only head-scratcher for me is that we all know the city is growing north.  It seems like the city is always buzzing up north, so the lack of customer traffic to me seems off.

Choice Financials on Front's hours will be 9 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday.  3 pm to 5 pm by appointment only.  Drive-up hours will be 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday.  9 am to 12 noon on Saturday.
