Business updates and more for the Bonanza Valley area

At Bonanza Valley State Bank in Brooten
The bank is closing the lobby, however, ATM is still available in the entry way. Also, the drive-up window is open, and staff are in the building and able to respond to e-mails and phone calls. The lobby will remain closed until March 27, at which time this will be re-visited.
