United Bank opens 15th bank­ing of­fice

The Covington News - - BUSINESS -

United Bank opened the doors of its 15th bank lo­ca­tion on Wed­nes­day, July 18, in Cov­ing­ton’s new Wal-Mart Su­per­Center. This is the sec­ond United Bank lo­ca­tion in the Cov­ing­ton mar­ket, and the bank’s fifth in­store bank­ing of­fice. Hours of op­er­a­tion are Mon­day through Fri­day, 10 a.m. un­til 8 p.m., and on Satur­day, 10 a.m. un­til 2 p.m.

United Bank’s first Cov­ing­ton bank of­fice opened down­town at 1182 Wash­ing­ton Street ear­lier this year. The bank op­er­ates four ad­di­tional in-store banks in gro­cery stores lo­cated in Grif­fin and Bar­nesville, and the Wal-Mart Su­per­Center lo­cated in Thomas­ton. “United Bank strives to of­fer its cus­tomers mul­ti­ple choices for han­dling their bank­ing needs,” said Reed Beard, Pres­i­dent of United Bank in Cov­ing­ton. The in-store lo­ca­tion of­fers ex­tended hours bank­ing for cus­tomers who have a hard time get­ting to the bank by 5 p.m. “Our in-store branch is a full ser­vice bank­ing of­fice. It’s ideal for busi­ness own­ers or man­agers who can­not leave the of­fice to visit the bank dur­ing tra­di­tional bank­ing hours.

Any­time you can com­bine two er­rands into one, such as buy­ing gro­ceries and mak­ing an ac­count de­posit, no one can re­sist the op­por­tu­nity to save valu­able time.”

United Bank em­ploy­ees staffing the new In­store lo­cated in Wal-Mart in­clude Regina Cheek, Micky Tyree, Lea Owensby and Nanje Dur­den.

In ad­di­tion to the Cov­ing­ton of­fices United Bank op­er­ates thir­teen other bank­ing of­fices in Pike, La­mar, Morgan, Spald­ing and Up­son coun­ties. With over 300 em­ploy­ees and $622 mil­lion in as­sets, the Bank of­fers a full range of small busi­ness, con­sumer and com­mer­cial bank­ing prod­ucts as well as res­i­den­tial mort­gages and trust and in­vest­ment ser­vices.

Stop by and visit Regina Cheek, the in-store branch man­ager, and her staff at this new­est bank lo­ca­tion in Cov­ing­ton.
