Earlier this week a new Wal Mart Supercenter opened in Antelope … and inside was a branch of Tri Counties Bank. It’s also stationed inside the new supercenters in Roseville and Yuba City … and will be in Wal Mart’s West Sacramento store when it opens next month.
Tri Counties is one of 300 community banks with branches in Wal Marts across the country. The supercenters draw the same customer for groceries perhaps twice a week – often enough to handle their banking needs too. In the next 18 months, the Chico-based bank plans to open 18 branches in Wal Mart supercenters, or other supermarkets, in the Valley.
