About Us - Testimonials


John Hunt, Owner, Premier Granite and Marble LLC – Pen Argyl, PA


“Getting financing for my new building through Merchants Bank was quick and easy. I’m proud to work with a business that is so concerned with the well-being of the community. I have personal accounts with Merchants Bank but I have been so pleased with their efficiency and service, that I plan to bring my business accounts to Merchants as well. I would recommend Merchants to anyone looking to truly partner with their bank.”

Tony and Sia Bassil, Carmelcorn Shop (Easton, PA)


“Being a long time Merchants bank customers, Sia and I would like to say a few words of recognition and thank you for your bank relationship:


The strategy that is used in your bank and by your staff to enhance profitability was accomplished by selling us not only financial products and services, but giving us the relationship that lead to a long customer loyalty. Our relationship with Merchants Bank goes beyond banking products.“

Diane Haviland, Owner of a mixed-use property in Easton


"It's about creating a caring, engaged neighborhood, and Merchants behaves like your neighborhood bank!”

John Arthur Brown, Mayor, Bangor Borough


“The value to the Borough of Bangor and the Slate Belt Region goes well beyond the generous donations the bank makes to many local organizations.  Rather, Merchants Bank’s contribution to our community is in living the vision of what it means to be a community bank.


  • Community banks focus attention on the needs of local families, businesses and farmers.
  • Community banks channel most of their loans to the neighborhoods where their depositors live and work, helping to keep local communities vibrant and growing.
  • Community banks officers are typically deeply involved in local community affairs. 
  • Community banks offer nimble decision-making on business loans because decisions are made locally.


For the past few years, I have participated on a number of local and regional committees and have witnessed firsthand not only the participation but the leadership of the bank’s most senior officers on critical issues facing our communities, volunteer organizations, businesses and local governments.


Despite facing challenges of its own during difficult economic environment, Merchants Bank has consistently provided both financial and human capital in support of keeping our community moving forward.


Bangor Borough and the Slate Belt Region have made considerable process in revitalizing our main streets and attracting new businesses into the area. Merchants Bank has played a key role in this success.  We are fortunate to have Merchants Bank as an essential asset in our Borough.

Ronald Brodsky – Right At Home (Easton, PA)


Despite all the negative stories about the “Big Banks” it’s a pleasure knowing that Merchants has still remained a community bank and has not followed that negative route.
