We held a ribbon cutting ceremony yesterday to formally announce the grand opening of our newest bank branch located in the Walmart Supercenter on Wanamaker Road in Topeka, KS!
Bank employees, guests, and Topeka Chamber of Commerce representatives were in attendance for the ceremony. Marsha Sheahan, Vice President of Public Relations, offered welcome remarks and introduced Central National Bank representatives for their comments.
“Our bank values our partnership with Walmart and is proud to offer customers such a convenient option for banking services,” said Ed C. Rolfs, Central National Bank Chief Executive Officer. “We are committed to Topeka and really enjoy our customers here and this community.”
We operate in-store bank locations in six Walmart stores across Kansas. The new Topeka Walmart location is a full service banking location and is open seven days a week. The branch is equipped with a Smart ATM, enabling customers to make deposits and withdraw cash after hours.
“Our team is thrilled to be here and open for business,” said John Legg, Branch Manager. “We have exciting grand opening specials and encourage everyone to stop in and visit our new branch.”
The Topeka Walmart branch will be open Monday-Friday from 10:00am to 7:00pm, Saturdays from 9:00am to 4:00pm and Sundays from Noon to 4:00pm.

At Central National Bank we’re all about service to our customers. And one of the services we provide is fraud monitoring.
For your protection, we recently placed a block on certain types of Central National Bank debit card transactions. If you have problems using your debit card to conduct International telephone or Internet transactions, it may be due to our attempt to protect your account from fraud. Transactions affected are those that require you to key in your card number in order to make a payment.
This change will not affect traditional retail transactions (those made in person). So, if you’re traveling feel free to continue use your debit card overseas!
We know that being away from home can be tough sometimes. So make sure to let us know if you have travel plans. We can put extra monitoring in place to lend you “peace of mind” while you’re away from home.
Call your local branch if you have questions regarding this change or specific transactions.
We appreciate your business, as well as your patience and understanding! Thank you!

You’ve all heard the old adage, but what if money actually can contribute to a happy and fulfilled life? Of course, I’m talking indirectly – taking a bag of money home and rolling around in it isn’t likely to cause giddiness. I recently read “Buying Happiness” by Gretchen Rubin and it got me thinking. I’ve decided money and/or the management of money really can lead to happiness. Here’s a rough summary of Rubin’s article…
- Money can help you build and maintain relationships with loved ones. Whether it’s planning a trip to visit far-away relatives or taking a friend to dinner, you’re using the green stuff to gain one of the emotional needs that help you to lead a happy life.
- Money can help you get more exercise. Physical activity is constantly linked with a better mood and attitude. Some people spend money on a gym membership, others a new bicycle or even a new iPod to listen to while running.
- Money can bring you peace of mind. Period. So manage your finances wisely and don’t get too far into debt. If you are in the red, figure out a budget that can help you get out of debt. Just the feeling of being in control can greatly contribute to your peace of mind.
- Money can help you eat better. Fresh and organic foods can be more expensive than processed meals, but by investing more you are contributing to good health and good relationships. At my house, the kitchen is where we usually spend time together as a family, whether we’re cooking, cleaning up or even hanging out, we’re always having fun.
- Money can help you contribute to the happiness of someone else. Sometimes, just making a friend happy is worth the cost of a gift. You can get that happy feeling from helping strangers, too!
Rubin finished with one important reminder: We are all very different and have different desires. If your friend/daughter/father/cousin wants to spend money on something, don’t be quick to judge! It might not be important to you, but could mean the world to them!

The newest ruse called “smishing” is a variation of phishing where cyber thugs use SMS text messaging to target mobile banking customers. Several articles suggest that we are in the early stages of mobile threats and that cyber criminals are still figuring out the best way to gain access to your personal information via cell phone.
Malware, which is short for malicious software, is still the most pervasive fraud out there and can attack any computer through e-mail or poisoned Web downloads. This is how criminals take control of your computer and ultimately your finances.
Obviously, mobile banking is becoming more and more common. Criminals know this and will become very efficient at digging for your information. Please make sure you and your friends are aware of this situation and if you receive a text that says it’s from your bank and to call the 1-800 number, go to your bank’s website to get the contact info, don’t just call the number provided in the text… You might get “smished”. Your bank will never text you for the purpose of soliciting information.
