Isn't the church opening a branch in Farmington inside the bank?

You can make a deposit and then go to the prayer booth to pray for more interest.

Just curious,


One would assume they've run the numbers and found it would be profitable to do so.

For me, at least, the only possible downside is whether the bank expands so much that it ends up being bought out by one of the other "mega banks" in the area.

I prefer a little competition in my local banking choices.

There is wealth in Farmington. Sounds like a good move to me.

Why so negative? You must have poor credit.

He thinks the Landfill Clay Mine is a good idea, but a bank adding a new branch is not a good idea, so what does that tell you?

Yeah, it's unreal how he prioritizes his opionions on important issues. Wants his landfill with those "jobs", but dosen't understand financial stratagies. Typical dumpy thinking.

I guess it isn't a "hometown bank" anymore.

I would argue that it is still the hometown bank, because I still believe it is, but I do believe you are right, it is not the hometown bank anymore, because what matters is perception, and I do believe that it is people's perception that it no longer is the hometown bank.

I love the original Seneca Falls savings bank location on Cayuga Street. It is Seneca Falls hometown bank. My wife used to bank here while I did mine downtown , near the old Hadleys. That bank (mine) changed names a bunch of times. The bank on the corner of Fall & Cayuga changed a lot too. The Seneca falls savings bank remained. It's a tough business they are a prime target to get bought by someone, if the price is right. Their stock is tightly traded but very attractive right now I feel.

Small profitable banks like this are prime targets for regional banks to try and snap up. One of the fastest growing things to dump some money in if you have any.

it stopped being a hometown bank around the time they decided to put a serious effort into eliminating the home town village that nurtured their growth.

I'd just like to see Generations Bank invest in a decent online banking system. I have accounts with a couple of banks just because Generation's online banking is so clunky and lacking of basic features.
It seems like there is never anyone at the "bricks and mortar" banks anymore (like the one Generations has next to Walmart). Online banking is definitely the way of the future.

Maybe you can "pray" for better online software programs and it will happen.

SF Hero, I don't get all of these church and praying comments...Are you making fun of the bank president? I notice that your profile picture is of Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Wasn't she a proponent of religious tolerance? I don't consider praying and being an active church member as a bad quality. Especially in light of the many illegal/immoral activities we read about locally. I'd rather see someone get strength from GOD instead of from HEROIN. (or maybe in your case, it's HEROINE hahaha)
So, what does this have to do with the business decisions of the old Seneca Falls Savings Bank?!?
