About Gratz Bank
The Gratz Bank has been serving customers in Dauphin, Schuylkill and Northumberland Counties of Pennsylvania since 1934. In 1986, the Bank formed a holding company, GNB Financial Services, Inc., to provide for additional security and growth potential for GNB shareholders. The first satellite office of the Bank was constructed in the neighboring community of Valley View, Pennsylvania in 1996. And in 2011, Gratz Bank purchased the Herndon National Bank and built a modern banking facility to serve Herndon and the surrounding communities. In 2014, Gratz Bank consummated its acquisition of Liberty Savings Bank in Pottsville, PA, further extending its market in Schuylkill County. This merger added the Yorkville Office on West Market Street in Pottsville to Gratz Bank’s branch network. In 2015, the Bank, acquired the First National Bank of Minersville, PA. During 2017, The Gratz Bank made a significant investment to advance the technology available to customers. Mobile banking was unveiled to The Gratz Bank customers in August 2017. As technology continues to advance, the Board of Directors and Management Team will be investing necessary resources and an upgrade to Internet Banking will be available to customers in the fourth quarter of 2019.
