New ARKLA Branch Grand Opening: Join the Celebration

Farmers Bank & Trust (FB&T) invites you to join us for a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony at our new full-service ARKLA branch, located near the Arkansas-Louisiana border. Scheduled for Thursday, May 30, 2024, the ribbon cutting will begin at 10 a.m., and the grand opening will immediately follow until noon. We extend a warm welcome to the public to join us for refreshments and celebrations.

The branch is located at 15064 Highway 371 S., Taylor, Arkansas, in the Community of Welcome, and opened for business on Thursday, Jan. 11. The new branch, which fully replaces the former building at ARKLA, brings updated FB&T technology,  convenience, and architecture to the location. It features a full slate of customer care assistance, including tellers, accounts and loan services, and a drive-thru. In addition, a new MyFarmers iTeller ITM with live teller services and a 24-hour ATM has been installed at the branch.

FB&T’s investment in southwest Columbia County has been significant over the past year. In September 2023, a MyFarmers iTeller ITM launched within the city limits of Taylor, Arkansas, to provide local and convenient banking options for customers in the area. 

MyFarmers iTeller ITMs provide full ATM capabilities plus live teller interactions. Services offered include customer deposits, cash withdrawals, fund transfers, account balance monitoring, loan payments, and general banking inquiries, all with the help of a friendly Farmers Bank & Trust teller via interactive video. Live Tellers are available from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

With the ARKLA branch opening, we’re not just expanding, but we’re enhancing access to financial services for our community and further investing in Columbia County,” said Monty Harrington, Market President at FB&T. “This is home, and we want all of our customers to experience the same great features and services they have come to expect from Farmers Bank & Trust — no matter where they are located.”
