Associated Bank Ellsworth Branch Manager Katie Galloway, fellow employees and other community and business partners celebrated the re-opening of Associated Bank in Ellsworth at a newly remodeled location.

On the evening of Jan. 24 the ribbon was cut and attendees were welcome to food, drink and a presentation of a $1,000 gift to the Pierce County Food Shelf.

The newly reopened building on Ellsworth’s Main Street has been under construction for the past six or seven months, Galloway said. The Associated Bank conducted business out of the old Bank Mutual location while renovations were being completed.

The Associated Bank business has been around for 150 years and offers more than 200 branches, serving about 100 communities, Dosen said at the ceremony.
