Empire National Bank Coming to Mineola

New bank branch to open in spring 2013.

Mineola is geting yet another bank branch in the Old County Road corridor.

Islandia-based Empire National Bank is planning on opening its first branch in Nassau County at the Benchmark building at 170 Old Country Road this year. Empire lists the suite address as 1W, which would be the current location of the Bank of America.

The bank has other locations in Islandia, Port Jefferson Station and Shirley.

Gold Coast Bank recently opened its first Nassau branch on the corner of Mineola Boulevard and Old Country Road.

“We expect to be open in the spring,” Empire Bank Chairman and CEO Douglas C. Manditch said in a release on the company’s fourth-quarter earnings report on Dec. 31, 2012. “We are excited to be expanding our footprint.”

The bank reported that its total assets were $438.4 million at the end of last year, a 29 percent increase over 2011. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 of $3.6 million, a decrease of $1.0 million from $4.6 million from 2011.

This is JUST what Mineola needs. Perhaps this well thought out move could use a drug store right next to it? I suppose the village board had no issue with this.

If it's not a place that serves food, the village board has little say as to they put there. Especially since a bank had been there previously, and they aren't making any major structural changes.
