The corner of State and High is the gateway to the Southern portion of downtown which has been revitalized by visionaries such as Bill Schottenstein and is growing new units everyday. We believe this new location will give us increased visibility and opportunity to expand our relationships and community involvement in downtown Columbus," stated McComb. "We are particularly excited about the new ticker and prominent video display making Heartland Bank more recognizable in the downtown community. Not only will we be featuring innovative bank products and services, but we will showcase our clients, local events and organizations that we have partnered with over the years through our philanthropic endeavors. Heartland Bank has partnered with Bill Schottenstein and Arshot Investment Corporation for location development, video signage and design of 101 S. High Street." When talking about Heartland, McComb said, "Some people prefer to deal with a community bank because they have a better chance of being heard. Heartland Bank is the kind of bank where you are known and where your business is appreciated. I invite you to come on over to Heartland, Where Banking Feels Good!"
