Citizens Bank was the only bank in Russellville that remained solvent during the depression of the 1930's
The bank built new offices in Red Bay in 1980 and Hodges in 1981, making Citizens Bank a "county-wide" bank
In 1988, the bank formed a holding company called CBS Banc-Corp
Opened a new subsidiary company of Citizens Bank called Citigroup Financial Services, Inc. in 1989
The first Citigroup office was established in Russellville in 1989 with three more offices added in Hamilton, Fayette and Muscle Shoals, Alabama over the next few years

The bank's first Lawrence County office was established in Moulton, Alabama in September 1995. The new bank was called CBS Bank because of the existence of a bank already in Moulton named Citizens Bank
