Welcome to The Gratz Bank
Your 5-Star Community Bank
The Gratz Bank has been serving customers in Dauphin, Schuylkill and Northumberland Counties of Pennsylvania since 1934. In 1986, the Bank formed a holding company, GNB Financial Services, Inc., to provide for additional security and growth potential for GNB shareholders. The first satellite office of the Bank was constructed in the neighboring community of Valley View, Pennsylvania in 1996. And in 2011, Gratz Bank purchased the Herndon National Bank and built a modern banking facility to serve Herndon and the surrounding communities. The original location of the Herndon National Bank, within the Borough of Herndon, PA, was donated to the community. In 2014, Gratz Bank consummated its acquisition of Liberty Savings Bank in Pottsville, PA, further extending its market in Schuylkill County. This merger added the Yorkville Office on West Market Street in Pottsville to Gratz Bank’s branch network.
Gratz Bank, under the leadership of its Board of Directors, President and CEO Wes Weymers, and his management team, and the dedicated staff, has grown to more than $200,000,000 in assets.
Gratz Bank is a full service community bank offering a full suite of deposit, loan and related financial services.
