WAYNE, NEBRASKA (May 1, 2019) – State Nebraska Bank & Trust broke ground for the new SNBuilding early on May 1. Joined by over 50 community members and bank employees, the bank also said goodbye to its Drive-Thru branch, which has been in Wayne for 44 years.
CEO Matt Ley gave remarks about the importance of the bank’s new Campus Branch and its connection to Wayne State College. Chairman David Ley also talked about the history of the original Drive-Thru branch. Demolition work began shortly after the groundbreaking ceremony. Watch the video recapping the event.
The 14,000-square-foot facility will reopen in the summer of 2020, featuring a walk-in lobby, ATM, drive-thru lanes, State National Insurance Company, a basketball/pickleball court for community use, and multiple Class A office spaces for lease, including shared-space options.
The SNBuilding is designed by Roy Ley with Hoke Ley, an architecture and interior design firm in Lawrence, Kansas, dedicated to the design of modern, humane spaces. Roy is the brother of State Nebraska Bank & Trust CEO Matthew Ley and designer of the Main Branch building at 2nd and Main Streets. The builder is locally-owned Otte Construction in Wayne.
During construction, State Nebraska Bank & Trust asks customers to visit its Main Branch at 122 Main Street in Wayne, which will have extended drive-thru hours Monday thru Saturday until 6 pm, in addition to its regular lobby hours.
State Nebraska Bank & Trust thanks its employees and community for their support of this new investment in Wayne America.
