In December 1988, a small group of investors founded Commercial Bank of West Port and opened its first location where a restaurant used to be. Waiters were replaced with tellers and the kitchen became a bank vault secured with a 21-ton steel door. Having survived a fire that destroyed a major bank building years before, this door was chosen as a symbol of security and resilience, and it still stands today as a reminder of the strong foundation that Commercial Bank was built upon.
As an influential part of the community, Commercial Bank found great success in West Port. A second location was opened in 1997 in Florissant and like the first location, secured its vault with a strong, historic door. The bank’s continued success generated a desire to extend its exceptional services to a third location. Opened in 2005, the Chesterfield Valley location followed the lead of the first two, with a commitment to provide friendly, personalized customer service. Most recently, a fourth location opened in 2014 at the corner of Mason and Manchester Road expanding our footprint in the West County area.
Today with the support of our customers, all four locations continue to thrive and grow. Commercial Bank now looks forward to branching out and developing new relationships with more local communities in the future.
