First Community Bank is thrilled to announce the commencement of an extensive renovation and expansion project at its Newport branch, located at 2525 Malcolm Avenue. 

Billy Keedy, branch manager for First Community Bank in Newport said, "We are thrilled to see construction starting on our expansion.  We appreciate management for believing in what we are doing in Newport and Jackson County.  We also are thankful for our wonderful client base trusting us with their banking needs.  This expansion wouldn’t be possible without all of them! During this transformation, we ask our valued customers to 'pardon our progress' as we work diligently to create a better banking experience for you all." 

Frank A. Rogers Company (FARCO) has been selected as the contractor for the project. Tim Yelvington, of RPPY Architects, is the designer behind the renovation of the existing 1,245 square foot building, including a 2,031 square foot addition. The remodel encompasses the addition of four offices, a safe deposit box room, a staff lounge, and improved bathroom facilities.

The expansion project aims to provide a more comfortable and efficient banking experience for our customers. It will also create a community space that can be utilized for various events and gatherings.
Construction is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2024.

Keedy continued, “First Community Bank is excited about the opportunities this expansion will bring to Newport and the surrounding areas. We look forward to welcoming you to our newly improved branch in the near future.”

The Newport location opened on January 22, 2019, and is a one-stop financial center offering a variety of financial services to its customers. The bank’s lobby is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and the drive-thru is open from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturdays. First Community Bank takes pride in offering competitive loan and deposit products, along with a robust suite of online and electronic banking services, including mobile banking and deposits, online bill pay, online/mobile account opening, and custom eAlerts.
