Great Southern Bank is expanding to west Omaha.
The Springfield, Mo.-based bank broke ground on a new location in March, with plans to open in November. It already has locations in Bellevue, South Sioux City and Fort Calhoun, Neb., said director of retail banking Kris Conley.
"We really wanted to grow our presence in Omaha. We really like that market, and we felt like if we were going to increase our presence there, we needed to be on that west side," Conley said. The new location will offer commercial lending and a retail bank area. Conley said Great Southern is in the process of hiring about 10 to 20 people to staff the bank, and most will be full-time workers.
Great Southern has about 107 locations in six states.
