First Community Bank has purchased property at 8101 Highway 49 in Brookland, Arkansas, and has received regulatory approval to build a sixth Northeast Arkansas banking center that will mark the 28th location in the bank’s branch network.
“The Brookland branch is the result of our commitment to Northeast Arkansas,” said Dale Cole, chairman and CEO of First Community Bank. “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.”
