The Edmond Economic Development Authority (EEDA) recently featured Citizens Bank of Edmond in the January 2019 issue of EEDA’s newsletter, The Arrow. The Arrow is a monthly newsletter emailed to approximately 2,000 subscribers. Featured businesses also receive a commemorative arrow to recognize their participation.

“The featured business portion of The Arrow was created as an outlet for the EEDA to further support and promote the Edmond business community,” said Janet Yowell, EEDA executive director. “Citizens Bank of Edmond has been an Edmond business for more than 100 years and we were pleased to feature the bank in The Arrow.”

Citizens Bank of Edmond opened in 1901 as the first community bank in Edmond. The bank, located at 1 East 1st Street, has been recognized as a top community bank by American Banker.

“The founders of Citizens Bank of Edmond understood the potential of the community and wanted to be a part of the city’s success and history,” said Chelsea Bradshaw, senior operations officer at Citizens Bank of Edmond. “Opportunities like being featured in The Arrow are among the many reasons we want to be in the Edmond business community for 118 years more!”
