MOORHEAD, Minn. – First International Bank & Trust is planning a new branch in Moorhead, Minn.

The company has planned an official groundbreaking ceremony at the construction site, 865 37th Ave. S., on Wednesday, Oct. 6.

According to the company, the branch will be 8,200 square feet and will feature 10 offices, two teller pods, and a two-lane drive-thru.

Plans for a new building have been in motion since FIBT first purchased the land in 2008. Once construction is complete in 2022, the new branch will provide a full array of financial services and will house the Moorhead banking and insurance teams.

“We’ve enjoyed serving the Moorhead community over the years and this expansion will allow us to do so more effectively,” President Peter Stenehjem said in a statement. “We look forward to opening this state-of-the-art branch and continuing to provide high-quality personal and business banking services while helping our new customers Live First.”
