Business Briefs, Dec. 8



Town and Country Bank is now InterBank.

Jim Chambers describes InterBank as a “hometown, community bank with strong rural ties.” Chambers has been president of Town and Country Bank since its inception 35 years ago.

The Stephenville-based Town and Country Bank operates branches in Granbury, Glen Rose, Bluff Dale and Aledo.

No staffing changes are anticipated at the bank or at the branches as a result of the sale/merger with InterBank.
