Local bank remodels everything but the walls

From the outside, First National Bank of the Rockies may not look a lot different than it did a year ago.

But that’s only because the bank’s exterior walls were the only thing that wasn’t completely remodeled recently.

The bank celebrated its yearlong remodel with a grand re-opening Thursday and Friday.

The project started Jan.8 and finished in mid-October.

Bank manager Todd Young said the response from customers at the grand reopening was very positive.

“We get a lot of wows,” he said.

Customers and employees had to work around the construction for 10 months, but Young said most were fine with it.

The bank has been in Craig since 1992, and the building has been there since the 1970s.

The remodel is meant to show people that the bank, which has offices across the Western Slope, plans to be in Craig for years to come.

“We’re here for the long haul,” Young said.
