The Community State Bank, Chartered originally as Poteau State Bank, was organized in 1970. Several local businessmen saw the need for another financial institution and started the new bank. While the bank's main office is located in Poteau, branch locations can be found in Spiro, Wister and Talihina as well as the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Poteau.
Bob and Deanna Reed, the bank's majority owners, practice a philosophy of giving much back to many causes and organizations. The bank mirrors this philosophy and is truly a community bank being involved in events, functions and fundraisers throughout the county. In 2011 bank staff participated in 107 different functions providing leadership as well as hands on participation to make our communities great places to live and work.
