Awesome Community Bank!

I have banked with Banner Bank in Spokane, WA for 5 years.  My wife, kids and I bank with the Downtown branch on 3rd and could not say enough for thier excellent customer service!! There was a little rough patch in the service there before the new Manager took over, but she has since hired a great crew that that takes care of my banking needs, are always friendly and are downright good people.  I would recommend Banner Bank to any of my friends or family, also, I have to mention that if I go to any other Banner Bank branch, I am always treated wonderfully.

Thanks for the great service!
