First National Bank of NWA – formerly First National Bank of Rogers –  has announced it has received regulatory approval to build a branch at 402 SW A. Street in Bentonville,  a site the bank acquired earlier this summer.

The anticipated construction start date will be in the first quarter of 2015.

“As promised, FNBNWA continues to show a commitment to our customers and community by providing more convenience and expanded services within our region.  We are also very excited to create more jobs and do our part to help our local economy,” Rob Husong, regional president of First National Bank of NWA, said in a statement. “We look forward to building something in the Arts District that the residents of Bentonville will be proud of by constructing a building that will embody the direction and scope of the already changing downtown Bentonville area.”

First National Bank of NWA is a division of the First National Bank of Fort Smith, which was chartered in 1872. The company provides its Northwest Arkansas customers with four branches, including Rogers (Pinnacle), Rogers (Dixieland), Lowell and Centerton, with Bentonville slated to open in 2015 in addition to 13 branches located in the Fort Smith metro area.
