Over 100 employees, distinguished guests, and community members congregated on the corner of 4th and Jefferson in Sturgeon Bay Tuesday morning to mark the beginning of a new era for Nicolet National Bank. The Green Bay-based bank broke ground on the new city branch across the street from its former location, which had grown to be too big for its 32 employees. Senior Vice President of Commercial Banking and Door County branch leader Jamie Alberts says the new building will help Nicolet National Bank be more efficient in how they serve their customers in Sturgeon Bay.
The new Sturgeon Bay branch is expected to open in May 2019. Alberts says while the Door County Community Foundation will move into its former conference center and clock tower space, it is still looking for a buyer for its three-story building.
