Bank of the Sierra announced it has opened its newest branch in Bakersfield.


The location at 4456 California Ave. was designed from the ground up, and features 6,000 square feet of space which includes a lobby, drive-up window, a walk-up and a drive-up ATM.

It is the fourth branch in town for the Porterville-based bank. It is located in the same shopping center as Hobby Lobby.

Kevin McPhaill, president and CEO of Bank of the Sierra, expressed his enthusiasm for the new opening in a statement. “Bakersfield is one of the Bank’s major markets and we were fortunate to secure such a great location along one of the city’s busiest thoroughfares. This location has all the attributes our previous California Avenue location lacked: convenient ingress and egress, drive-up banking, superior visibility and great parking. We anticipate the new location will greatly improve the customer experience, one of the key elements evaluated in our branch expansion strategy.”

The branch is now officially open for business during the following hours:
9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Thursday
9 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Fridays

The bank also offers extended drive-up hours:
8:30 a.m. – 5:30 pm, Monday – Thursday
8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Fridays
