Auburn State Bank Announces Building Project in Downtown Auburn

Project aligns with mission to provide a community banking experience focused on convenience and personal relationships.


AUBURN, Neb. (March 22, 2017) – Auburn State Bank announced a building project to expand their downtown Auburn location at 1212 J Street. The project illustrates the bank’s commitment to providing a community banking experience for those living in Auburn and the surrounding area in the near and distant future.

“Our family believes in community banking and we are proud of the role the Auburn State Bank has played in that history here in our community,” said Jim Grant, President and Chairman of the Board. “The Directors, Officers, and Employees are excited about this opportunity and look forward to continuing the great relationships we have established over our long history. This project will help to ensure the presence of a strong community bank in our community for years to come.”

The new expansion will be built where the former Flower Country and Gifts store and Glen’s Drugstore were located. The entrance to the bank will be on the Southeast corner of the newly constructed building. Construction will begin later this Spring with expected completion in early 2018.

Having all the bank staff and operations in one location will create more efficiencies internally, which will translate into a smooth experience for customers whether they call, walk in, or visit the bank’s drive-thru.

 “We take great pride in providing excellent customer service in the most efficient manner,” Auburn State Bank CEO Jeff Allgood said. “By consolidating our staff into one facility, combined with an investment in modern technology that will enhance the multiple avenues of access to the bank, we are setting the foundation to continue our legacy of providing the ultimate banking experience in our community.

“The banking landscape continues to change and we want to provide superior service through fast and efficient experiences at our locations and relevant technology products so that our customers can truly bank with us for life.”



Auburn State Bank is a locally owned and operated, independent bank serving Auburn and surrounding communities in Nemaha and neighboring counties. The bank has a proud history of serving customers since 1905.
