Winona National Bank Downtown Drive-Up and ATM Now Open

Winona National Bank is pleased to announce that its new Drive-Up Banking Facility and ATM at its Downtown location, 204 Main Street, are now open to the public.
“We’re very excited to provide this new facility to our clients and the community,” Jack Richter, Winona National Bank President & CEO, said. “The additional staff parking will be a nice addition for our neighboring businesses and the entire Downtown core.”
The new Drive-Up facility features three lanes and a walk-up window. All contain video screens, allowing the customer and teller to see and interact with one another during the transaction. In addition, 29 employee parking spaces were added near the facility, freeing many Downtown parking spaces for customer and community parking.
The new Drive-Up has also added to the beauty of Downtown Winona as the exterior was modeled after the bank’s historic Downtown Office, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
