Fidelity Bank Opening 2nd Decatur Location in old Decatur First Bank Building


Fidelity Bank is opening a second Decatur location at the old Decatur First Bank building along Commerce Drive.

How do I know this?  Well, because FMFats sent us this picture.

Decatur First Bank was acquired by Fidelity Bank back in 2011.

Fidelity’s first location is at 160 Clairemont Ave.  That building’s parking lot is currently being developed into apartments by Paces Properties.

An update on takeover of Decatur First Bank by Fidelity Bank.

Carl Black took this picture of the sign at what was once the main branch of DBF yesterday, which announces that both the main Commerce Drive office and the Kroger satellite locations will close.  Carl reports that Fidelity must provide 30 days notice to customers before doing so, but the plan is to close both branches before Christmas.
