Gate City Bank will launch a third location in March. According to a press release, the bank will be located in the Cash Wise Foods store at 1001 4th Street Southeast in St. Cloud.

The bank announced plans in September to open branches in the Cash Wise store in Waite Park and Coborn's Sauk Rapids location, also in the spring of next year.
