First National Bank going into Ecru to replace BancorpSouth

By Pontotoc Progress

Ecru will have a local bank. First National Bank president Buddy Montgomery announced today that the bank will be filling the void that BancorpSouth leaves behind when the doors close August 31.

“It is our intention to have a temporary bank set up in Ecru by the middle of August,” Montgomery said. “We will procure land and build a new bank.

“The board is excited and delighted to make this commitment to provide Ecru and the adjoining communities with a bank more convenient to their location.”
