A banking company based out of Spencer in Roane County is about to join the Charleston market.
Traders Bank plans to open a branch in downtown Charleston in the next couple weeks. Traders Bank vice president Marshall McNeer says it will offer commerical lending at first, but the company hopes to expand to a full-service office.
There are currently 23 different banks operating in the Charleston area.
Traders Bank currently has branches in Spencer, Ripley and Mineral Wells. The bank began operations in 1903.
