For about a month, Lincoln Savings Bank’s Adel branch has been enjoying the occupation of their new location, which sits at the corner of Nile Kinnick Drive and Greene Street in Adel. On May 10, LSB’s employees, Adel Chamber members and members of the local community got together to help them celebrate their new location with a Grand Opening event from 5-8 p.m.
Those in attendance got to see the inside of the new building and take a tour. On the outside, there was a balloon artist, food and drinks, live music and more for those in attendance to enjoy.
Branch manager Tim Canney said that it felt great to finally get a chance to show off the new building to the public.
“You know, starting on the square in a small building, that was a little unconventional kind of bank with no ATM, no drive-thru, no safe-deposit boxes, to landing the best spot in Adel with a brand new branch is pretty exciting,” Canney said.
In the time that they have been in the new building, Canney said that they have been busy hosting events and tours for the public and that it has helped business with the bank.
“Business is booming,” Canney said. “Just the new location, visible, people wanting some of the services, drive-thru and such. We’ve been waiting for that, so yeah, we’re extremely busy.”
The tables and chairs that filled the parking lot of Lincoln Savings Bank was mostly full of attendees, which says something about the bank’s place in the community.
“It reflects the team that we’ve put together here,” Canney said. “We’re a team full of community members who are involved in the community. Almost everyone in our bank is from Adel and has lived in Adel for a long time and is involved in the community in many different ways, and so it’s kind of reflected by what we want to do.
“We’re a community bank, we’re a part of the community and the community supported this, so this is just kind of a reflection of that.”
Canney said that he expected the big turnout that they had as a result of promoting it as much as they have.
The new location is at 312 Nile Kinnick Drive South in Adel. The lobby is open from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and the drive-thru is open from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
