TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Terre Haute Savings Bank President Bart Colwell announced Tuesday that, to emphasize its commitment to the individual communities it serves, the bank will be changing its name to the “Hometown Savings Bank” in February 2022.
“Terre Haute Savings Bank has been an integral part of the fabric of Terre Haute since 1869. As THSB has grown over the years, in addition to our various Terre Haute locations we have added branches in the communities of Brazil, Riley and West Terre Haute,” Colwell said in a news release. “With that growth, we believe that it is the right time for our bank’s name to reflect its ongoing commitment to serve our hometown of Terre Haute, where the bank’s charter will always remain, in addition to each community in which THSB operates.”
Customers will keep their same account numbers, direct deposits and withdrawals will occur in the same account as usual, the bank’s ABA Routing and Transit Number will not change and customers will continue to use their current supply of checks, Colwell emphasized. The new name simply emphasizes to all communities where THSB operates.
“THSB is the same bank with the same staff. We have significant customer recognition of the THSB brand, and our new name will allow us to retain that THSB brand familiarity for our customers,” he continued. “We are excited to adopt a name that reflects our pledge and commitment to provide hometown community banking services to each location where the bank operates now and to any community into which the bank might expand in the future. THSB believes in each community in which we operate, and the name ‘The Hometown Savings Bank’ underscores that belief.”
