About Us

Merchants Bank is a traditional, but progressive, locally owned institution serving the people of Clarke, Washington, Mobile and surrounding counties. Merchants Bank opened its doors to its downtown Jackson location in 1962. Merchants Bank had a modest beginning with a staff of only three officers, five employees and assets of $400,000.00.

As traffic flows and demographics changed, it expanded to a second location in 1978. The new location on College Avenue became its main office. In 1997, the opportunity to expand into the Grove Hill market availed itself through the Grove Hill office of United Security Bank becoming available for purchase. Merchants Bank purchased this office on October 31, 1997 and opened for its first day of business on November 1, 1997. Merchants Bank opened its fourth office in the Thomasville area on September 5, 2000. Merchants Bank opened its fifth office in the Mobile area on June 29, 2007 and the sixth office was opened April 21, 2016 in Semmes, AL.

In keeping up with the latest innovations/services and making them available to their customers, Merchants has maintained a steady and rapid growth and now employs a staff of over sixty and has assets of over $200 million. While a full service institution, its primary focuses are residential real estate, business, timberland loans and retail deposits.
