CBL State Savings Bank was publicly recognized a South Carolina Centennial Business by South Carolina Secretary of State Mark Hammond.

CBL celebrated its 110th anniversary last June when it was rebranded as CBL State Savings Bank.

Hammond recognizes businesses that have been registered with the secretary’s office for 100 years or more.

“CBL State Savings Bank of Greer has been a true pillar of its community by fostering savings and home ownership for more than a century,” Hammond stated. “I’m proud to acknowledge CBL’s longevity and contributions to our great state, and to recognize it as a South Carolina Centennial Business.”

The Greer bank was incorporated as Citizens Building and Loan Association of Greer on May 7, 1907.

CBL implemented its mission by encouraging Greer’s close-knit community of farmers, mill workers and merchants to build their dreams through home ownership and by regularly saving for the future. CBL’s early customers would deposit as little as $5 a week in savings plans, according to the announcement.

“The fact that we remain a vital part of the greater Greer community after so many years is not only a testament of the talent of the people who built our institution, but to the community itself. We take pride in our rich history and the trust that our customers continue to place in us,” stated Jennifer Jones, bank president and CEO, in the announcement.
