Citizens Savings Bank is a locally managed and operated bank that has been serving Northeastern Pennsylvania for over 120 years.
We’re dedicated to building long-term customer relationships through outstanding service. Even our CEO, Joseph F. McDonald, has noticed just how many Citizens Saving Bank customers and staff are on a first name basis. And when the CEO knows, you know you’re doing something right.
A Long History of Building Strong Communities
It was back on July 17, 1902 that a group of twelve friends and neighbors with foresight met to found what’s now known as Citizens Savings Bank. The group was united by a common goal: to provide funds for homebuyers and builders, while offering a safe, profitable place for people to invest their hard-earned money. Today, Citizens Savings Bank has seven branch offices located throughout Lackawanna, Wayne, and Monroe Counties.
