"It's about creating a caring, engaged neighborhood, and Merchants behaves like your neighborhood bank!”
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.
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.“ – John Arthur Brown, Mayor Bangor Borough

Merchants Bank of Bangor gives me piece of mind in knowing all my financial needs are being handled personally by their friendly and competent staff. Merchants Bank of Bangor has been my bank for the past five years offering superb customer service and friendly, personal assistance with all my banking needs. Without a doubt, they are the best banking institute I have ever dealt with in my twenty years as a business owner. I would invite anyone to sit down with the staff at Merchants Bank and listen to what they have to say. I’m sure they will agree, Merchants Bank of Bangor is a courteous, personal and professional bank willing to accommodate all your banking needs offered by a large banking institute but with a small town feeling.
