Letter from President

Over the past several weeks, we’ve all sat back and watched with uncertainty as the events of the COVID-19 Pandemic have continued to unfold.   As the pandemic and subsequent guidance continues to evolve, we are left to navigate this new, ever-changing, and hopefully short-lived “normal” that has been thrust upon us.  What we used to take for granted, may no longer be.  However, through it all, one fact holds true; we will get through this together, as a community and a country!

We are here for you.  As an “Essential Business”, GTSB will remain open our normal banking hours throughout the “Shelter in Place” order and long after.  With that being said, temporary precautions have been put into place to ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers, and our community, as this is our highest priority.

Effective Thursday, March 19, 2020 and until further notice, Germantown Trust & Savings Bank customers will have limited access to the lobby of our facilities in Bartelso, Beckemeyer, Breese, and Germantown.

Normal, over the counter transactions, will be conducted through our drive-thru lanes only.  In an attempt to better serve all of our customers in a timely fashion, we kindly ask that you make use of all available drive thru lanes.

If you need access to the lobby, need to make an appointment, or need other assistance, please call one of the following:

  • Bartelso Branch: 618-765-2112
  • Beckemeyer Branch: 618-227-8584
  • Breese Branch: 618-526-4202
  • Germantown Branch: 618-523-4202

By email: customer@gtsb.com

We encourage customers of Germantown Trust & Savings Bank to take advantage of our online products, which include online banking, mobile banking, and bill pay.  Additionally, GTSB has seven ATMs available for your use.

GTSB ATM Locations:

  • Albers (Rt 161 West of Casey’s)
  • Bartelso Branch Drive-Thru
  • Beckemeyer Branch Drive-Thru
  • Breese Branch Drive-Thru
  • Breese Route 50 (across from Dairy King)
  • Germantown (601 Main Street)
  • St Joseph’s Hospital (outside cafeteria)

We apologize for this inconvenience.  We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updated information on coronavirus/Covid-19 as it evolves.

In the meantime, stay healthy, stay positive, and God bless!
