JD Bank to Open New Location at 119 W. Sale Rd. on July 5
Jennings, LA – JD Bank is pleased to announce that our 119 W. Sale Road location will open July 5, 2022, offering a high-tech, high-touch approach to serve the personal and business financial needs of the Lake Charles community. This full-service branch replaces our Ryan Street location, which was destroyed by Hurricane Laura in 2020. “After the destruction of our McNeese Branch in August 2020, we made a commitment to our customers and the Lake Charles community to help revitalize the University area that was hit hard by hurricane devastation. Our team is ready to open a new, innovative and modern branch on W. Sale Road. Our efforts, combined with some exciting redevelopment by McNeese University, will create a vibrant environment at the Ryan Street and W. Sale Road intersection. We look forward to continuing to offer JD Bank’s unique brand of community banking at this new location,” said Bruce W. Elder, President and CEO.
