From the period of June 3, 2023, until August 5, 2023, former Granite Mountain Bank customers may continue to use their existing debit cards and check stock.

As an independent community bank head quartered in Clara City, Minnesota, with assets exceeding $1.3 billion, CAB has already established a strong presence in Montana through its offices in Great Falls, Seeley Lake, and Lincoln. The addition of GMB further solidifies CAB's position as a dedicated and community-focused financial institution, extending its reach and enhancing its ability to serve the needs of customers throughout the region.

As a result of this acquisition, GMB customers can anticipate a gradual introduction of exciting new banking products and services. These enhancements will include the availability of bank-sourced Visa credit cards, cutting-edge digital banking technologies, expanded access to the secondary real estate lending market, and an increased bank-lending limit. Through these developments, CAB reaffirms its commitment to local community banking, with a focus on delivering an enhanced and comprehensive banking experience for GMB customers.

Citizens Alliance Bank eagerly looks forward to the opportunity to serve these communities and build upon the strong foundation that Granite Mountain Bank has established over the years. With a shared dedication to exceptional customer care and a steadfast commitment to the prosperity of the local communities, CAB is excited to embark on this new chapter, continuing to deliver the highest quality financial services and support to GMB customers.
