Peoples Bank is a Community Bank

We sat down with Candace Frump, Branch Manager of Wilmington & Sabina, and Matt Runk, Assistant Manager at Wilmington Main branch to find out what makes Peoples Bank different from other area banks. It feels like a small, hometown bank because of the friendly people who work there, but Peoples Bank actually serves three states with 90 locations. Founded in 1902, Peoples Bank is headquartered in Marietta, Ohio and has over$3.4 billion in assets. They offer a variety of financial products from banking to insurance to investing.

Local Branch closing, but many other area branches to visit

West Location is closing Friday, March 31st 6 pm. All the employees will still have jobs with the bank, some in town and some going to Hamilton Twp office. There are still two branches still in Wilmington Plaza, 1344 Rombach Rd., and Wilmington Main branch on 48 N.South Street. There are also offices in Sabina, New Vienna, Blanchester, Waynesville, Hillsboro, and more!
