By Patrick Lynn

Peoples State Bank has opened a full-service location in Whiting.

The new full-service branch opened this week in the Designers 2 complex, 138 McDill Ave.

The location includes a drive-up video teller ATM. With the assistance of the live video teller, customers can deposit money or checks, transfer money within their accounts, make a loan payment, and withdraw money.

The business opened with a ribbon-cutting celebrated by the Portage Co. Business Council Ambassadors.

Scott Cattanach, Peoples State Bank president and CEO said the company is committed to “bringing the same excellent customer service to Portage County that has helped us grow to be Marathon County’s number one community bank.”

“For over 60 years, Peoples has been committed to providing financial solutions with a welcoming experience while supporting our community’s growth. As new customers come to know Peoples, they’ll find a partner built on strong relationships to meet individual needs,” he said.

Branch manager Dustin Dietel joined Peoples with over five years of banking experience and will guide the Stevens Point personal banking team to serve and educate customers on products that benefit their unique financial situation.

The branch will have Monday-Friday hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., drive-up video teller ATM hours Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.
