A Kentucky-based bank has announced where its newest branch will be located — just across the street from one that’s closing.

Shelbyville-based Citizens Union Bank will open its 16th location Monday, June 19, at 101 Huntington Ridge Drive, at the corner of Shelbyville Road and the Gene Snyder Freeway in Middletown. The current location across Shelbyville Road will be closed, according to a news release from the bank.

A Citizens Union Bank branch will open June 19 in Middletown.

“Strategically, we concluded that relocating the branch … would be a huge benefit to our customers. The new branch is much more visible and easier to get to,” Debbie Prewitt, Louisville market president for the bank, said in the release.

Bank officials declined to disclose the cost of the building. Six employees will work at the bank branch.

“In today’s banking world, customers want high-tech and high-touch,” said Citizens Union CEO David Bowling in the release. “The traditional teller line is gone and instead there are ‘pods’ where customers can do all of their banking in one spot. We are also extremely excited about the exterior design, which is an entirely new look for our bank.”

Citizens Union Bank has $720 million in assets and is one of the 20 largest banks headquartered in Kentucky (it’s No. 12 on our list of area banks). It was established in 1888.
