Bank opens new branch in Basehor

May 19, 2004

Employees and customers alike have settled into the new, permanent digs at Community National Bank in Basehor.

"The first week is behind us," said Debbie Breuer, manager of the Basehor branch. "We're here and we're rolling."

Last week, the new bank opened its doors for the first time to customers. It transferred its operation from its temporary building, located inside the Basehor Town Square, south across U.S. Highway 24-40 to the Pinehurst development. It is now located on a two-acre site at the southeast corner of 158th Street and 24-40.

The new building, a two-story colonial-style structure, encompasses 17,000 square feet and its interior features a refined decor with luxurious furnishings, Breuer said.

"It's very inviting, very warm and customer friendly," she said.

The three-level building houses tellers and loan officers on the ground floor and the credit department on the second floor.

A community meeting room and training room, which will accommodate 24 people, is in the basement and is available to bank customers.

Community National Bank, based in Seneca with a branch office in Tonganoxie, has operated in Basehor since 2002.

There has been no announcement about a new tenant for the bank's former location at Town Square.
