Woodland Branch and Woodland Commons Renovated

Exciting things are happening in Woodland, and we’re so happy to be a part of it! As Woodland’s community neighbor since 1982, we’d like to share with you some of the projects we’re working on, in our continual efforts to make Woodland an even better place to live and work. In 2018, we purchased the Oak Tree Plaza, the shopping center where our Woodland branch is located, and renamed it Woodland Commons. Our first order of business was to facilitate the renovation and relocation of Gilliano’s Pizza & Ice Cream Parlor, a Woodland Commons tenant and one of our long-time business members. In December, Gilliano’s moved across the parking lot into a new space, complete with a totally updated look that’s perfect for a family-friendly night out.

Next, we expanded and renovated our Woodland branch, and moved into the new space on March 18. Next to our Main Branch, Woodland is the busiest of our 14 branches. We nearly doubled the size of the branch to accommodate the growing needs of the Woodland community. This added space includes:
  • More privacy for loans and new accounts, as we expand the number of offices from 3 to 7
  • More teller windows, in anticipation of future growth
  • A larger, renovated lobby area
Two other Woodland Commons tenants, Rose & Thorn Boutique and CocoBella Spa & Home Décor, have also increased their store space to accommodate more business. Now that renovations are complete, we plan to clean up the lot, curbs, and landscaping for optimum street appeal. Our commitment to Woodland doesn’t stop with Woodland Commons. Here are just a few of the activities we’ve been involved with so far this year:
  • Sponsor of the Woodland Hot Summer Nights Concert Series
  • Supporter of the Woodland Public School's Family Community Resource Center
  • Contributor to the Woodland Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet
  • Donor to Woodland Action Center’s “Drive out Hunger” Golf Tournament
  • Prize sponsor for Planters' Days Bingo in support of the Woodland Historical Museum Society
  • Sponsor of the Woodland Chamber Golf Tournament
  • Supporter of the Woodland Beaver Boosters Golf Tournament
  • Sponsor of Woodland Movies in the Park
It all adds up: We love our Woodland members, and will continue to be the best community neighbor we can as we move into the future. If you’re a Woodland member, stop by, say hi, and check out our new digs!
