Dirty Dogs Gone Grooming

Everybody’s been so kind and helpful. It’s just a great experience. Bell is the best bank I’ve had. I don’t plan on changing banks ever again.

How I chose Bell:

Ciera Flores-DeGroat of Detroit LakesMy mom banks at Bell, so I opened an account, and I’ve never switched, because I really love it there. Everybody knows you by your first name and is willing to help you right away. The hours are nice, too. Sometimes I work later, so it helps me.

How long I’ve been a customer:

10 years

My favorite banker:

When I go in, I see Karen Sakariassen. She’s always really talkative, and she is a family person. Every time I bring my daughter in, she oohs and aahs over her.
