First Community Bank is planning to expand into Brookland in northeast Arkansas.
The Batesville-headquartered bank has bought property along Highway 49 in Brookland and is planning to construct its 28th location there. The site is located at 8101 Hwy. 49.
Currently, First Community Bank is planning to build a 4,302 square-foot facility with a public-use community room. Stonebridge Construction of Jonesboro has been selected as the project’s contractor.
“The Brookland branch is the result of our commitment to northeast Arkansas,” First Community Bank chairman and CEO Dale Cole said in a statement. “We are thrilled to make this significant investment in Brookland and look forward to building a full service, one stop financial center for this dynamic community.”
The Brookland location will mark First Community Bank’s sixth location in northeast Arkansas. It also has location in Jonesboro at 1617 S. Caraway Road, 630 Southwest Drive, and 222 E. Washington Avenue, as well as locations in Lepanto at 306 Elder Street in Bay and 202 Greenwood Avenue.
