Wink Hartman Sr. says his Vintage Bank Kansas has finalized its purchase of Peabody State Bank in Peabody.
This gives Vintage Bank just over $100 million in assets and five sites, in Peabody, Wichita, Conway Springs, Leon and Benton.
The bank also plans a new site in El Dorado next year.
“Vintage Bank Kansas looks forward to additional growth and serving our customers in each community,” Hartman said in an e-mail.
He said sound fiscal policy is what will make a stronger future.
“It’s time for Kansas to put the chemistry set back in the closet and stop experimenting.”
