The nine branches of Frontier Bank reopened over the weekend during normal business hours as branches of HeritageBank. Depositors of Frontier Bank will automatically become depositors of HeritageBank.

The FDIC advises Frontier Bank customers to continue using their existing branch until they receive notice from HeritageBank that it completed systems changes to allow other HeritageBank branches to process their accounts as well.
