Headquartered in Springfield, Mo., the Company operates 114 offices in eight states, including 110 retail banking centers in Missouri, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota and Nebraska, three commercial loan offices in Dallas, Texas, Tulsa, Okla., and Overland Park, Kansas, and one home loan office in Springfield, Mo. Great Southern offers one-stop shopping with a comprehensive lineup of financial services that give customers more choices for their money. Customers can choose from a wide variety of checking accounts, savings accounts and lending options. With the understanding that convenient access to banking services is a top priority, customers can access the bank when, where and how they prefer, whether it’s through a banking center that will have the longest banking hours in town, through an ATM, by telephone or through the Internet.
Great Southern’s mission is to build winning relationships with its customers, associates, shareholders and communities. On any given day, we are hard at work helping young families realize the dream of home ownership, helping a business owner expand his or her business, or providing the right product or service to help an individual save for a future goal.
