Delta Trust & Bank’s newest branch at The Village at Hendrix will officially open Tuesday when the bank hosts a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce at 4 p.m.

"Our doors are open and we look forward to providing our financial services to the residents of Conway," said French Hill, CEO of Delta Trust. Delta Trust is a full service bank with expertise in banking, trust, investments, home financing and insurance.

Delta Trust & Bank’s 3,200 square foot branch is located in the newest addition to The Village at Hendrix, Market Square South. Michael Bynum, Conway Market President, added, "We are very proud of our branch and our location. We invite everyone to stop by and take a look around."

The branch opens a month after Delta Trust & Banking Corp. announced a forthcoming merger with Simmons First National Corp. in a $66 million transaction.

The transaction is expected in the third quarter and is subject to certain closing conditions, including Delta Trust shareholder approval and customary regulatory approvals.

Upon closing, Delta Trust will merge with Simmons First. In the fourth quarter, Simmons First will begin the process of merging Delta Trust & Bank into Simmons

First National Bank, the company’s wholly-owned bank subsidiary, including changes to the newly constructed branch such as signage.
