Local. Loyal. And Lending a Hand.

Now more than ever, it's important to act locally.

Doing Right. Right Here.

First State Bank is proud to celebrate 98 years of being local and loyal - a true community bank that is deeply committed to the success of our friends, families and businesses.  Since 1917, we've grown alongside our neighbors as an anchor in our community by providing financial expertise and a helping hand. 

Now more than ever, it's important to support our community.  When you act locally, you're jump-starting a momentum that keeps shops, banks and restaurants open, and schools and organizations thriving.  By banking with us, you're making the greatest investment of all - in your community.

You can help by dining at a local restaurant, selecting locally grown produce, visiting a local attraction, choosing Michigan-made products, in addition to banking with your hometown bank. 

Small changes. Big impact.

Even small changes add up when you act locally.  Consider the facts:

  • For every $100 spent at a locally-owned business, $68 stays in the local economy compared to only $43 if spent at a national chain.*
  • A 10% shift in market share from chains to locals could result in: Nearly $140 million in new economic activity, over 1,600 new jobs, and providing over $50 million in new wages.*
  • If each household in Michigan shifted just $10 of weekly spending to Michigan products, more than $37 million per week would be poured back into our state's economy.**
  • Each time $1 enters our local economy, it is spent an average of 3-7 more times before it ever leaves the state.**
