Wednesday, January 24th, 2018

Following a declaration of bankruptcy in September, Toys ‘R’ Us plans to close as many as 182 outlets across the country in early 2018.

Chairman and CEO Dave Brandon said in a letter Wednesday that tough decisions are required to save Toys R Us.
Two Babies R Us stores in Indiana will be part of those closings.

The two stores are:

3928 E. 82nd Street Indianapolis, and 8800 US 31 South, Greenwood.

Brandon said that the majority the targeted stores will be closed by mid-April and that there will be deep discounts at those locations.

David Taylor Joins Home Bank Team


Martinsville, Indiana, September 8, 2015 — Dan Moore, President and CEO of Home Bank SB, has announced that David Taylor joined their team as the mortgage loan originator at the Mooresville branch in July. He is responsible for residential mortgage lending, focusing his efforts in Putnam and Hendricks counties.


Taylor has been in the banking industry for 25 years, focused mostly in national banking as a loan officer/credit analyst managing commercial, real estate, and consumer lending portfolios. He also has experience in the ag-consumer field where he was responsible for growth and development of loan portfolios including, but not limited to, construction, purchase money and refinancing


Taylor is a Greencastle native and attended Greencastle Senior High School before obtaining his bachelor degree in English literature at DePauw University.  In his spare time, he enjoys serving on the board of trustees for the Putnam County Public Library and spending time with his friends and family.

Without private ownership or stockholders, the bank’s profits are allocated entirely to its capital reserves, resulting in greater fiscal strength and resources for community support.
