Due to severe weather on Monday, May 20, both Arvest branches in Moore, Oklahoma closed temporarily. The Arvest location at 824 S.E. 4th St. reopened for normal business hours on May 31. The Arvest location at 2101 S. Santa Fe Ave. reopened at noon on May 31.

The community of Moore was hit by a tornado which continues to cause power outages in that community. We are very thankful and fortunate to note that all Arvest associates are okay.

The Central Oklahoma Red Cross website contains information on how to get help and find loved ones impacted by the tornado.

We apologize for any inconvenience. We will update this blog as more information becomes available. You can bank 24 hours a day, 7 days a week using:

My husband and I are members of Arvest who have moved to Georgia just a few short months ago. The two branches effected were the two branches we did our banking transactions at. We are thinking about you guys and am glad to hear the locations were not damaged further. The staff at both locations are very helpful and caring. We wish the best for you all. Thank you for us always having a wonderful experience at both Ste Fe and 4th. We very much hope your families are safe and doing well!! It is difficult for us to be 1000 miles away and unable to help the community of Moore. We have donated via AT&T texting to both Redcross and Salvation Army to try and do our part as best we can from so far away to help out. I encourage all members if they can to do the same!! We have children in the area with one of them narrowly escaping the tornado destroying her school of Briarwood. Our thoughts are with you all!!

Elizabeth - Thank you for these very kind words regarding our teams of associates in Moore, OK. We passed your comments along to the local management team and they immediately responded to us, wanting to extend a sincere and heart-felt "Thank-you" to you and your husband. We are so thankful that your children are also safe!!

Also, thank you for your contributions to the Red Cross and Salvation Army. While monetary donations aren't feasible for everyone, it definitely helps those organizations get supplies to families in need.

My wife and I sustained damage to our home during the May tornados. Our mortgage is through Arvest. We filed our claim through our insurance and received a check to conduct the necessary repairs. However we have to have our mortgage company indorse the check to, but to our amazement we cannot have access to those funds until repairs have been made. It has something to do with arvests investment rules. Really? I could swear the premiums to the insurance company was my money and not Arvests. We have been paying those premiums evidently to protect Arvests interest and not ours. I understand that rules are rules, but these are extenuating circumstances even declared a national emergency by the President and we cannot make the repairs with a check in hand we cannot cash. Shame on you Arvest. So much for customer service, the little guy and just doing the right thing during this traumatic time. Maybe one of these nights I will get to sleep in the same bed as my wife since ours is gone because it was covered in glass.
