Citizens Bank is a family-owned, community bank serving the people of the Texas Panhandle and Eastern New Mexico. We provide the very best in customer service as well as the latest products and technologies to keep your banking experience simple and convenient.
Citizens Bank’s history dates back to 1904 when The First National Bank of Claude, Texas was chartered. The original Citizens Bank was founded in 1948 in Tucumcari, New Mexico. The two banks merged in 2004 under the Citizens Bank name. Today, we operate with locations in Amarillo, Claude and Tulia, Texas and Tucumcari, New Mexico.
Over the past century Citizens Bank has seen many changes. However, one critical element remains the same: local ownership and control. In today’s ever-changing marketplace, large interstate banks continue to expand, moving the decision-making process out of the local community. Our commitment to you is that all decisions will continue to be made right here, by people who live and invest in the community.
Citizens Bank is a leader in Agricultural lending and has been recognized as one of the top fifty banks in the United States with regard to performance and safety. Twice in 2012 Citizens Bank was cited on MSN Money as one of the safest banks in America. We maintain this reputation and rating by continuously exceeding industry standards.
Citizens Bank invites you to come in and see us. You’ll find that we truly have your best interest at heart. We’re not just located in your town, we’re part of your community.
