lay­out and has six teller lanes, four drive-through lanes, one walk-up ATM and one drive-through ATM.

“It’s great to see Wa­chovia in­vest­ing in Cov­ing­ton through the open­ing of this new lo­ca­tion,” said Mayor Kim Carter, who is sched­uled to at­tend a rib­bon-cut­ting and “first cus­tomer” cer­e­mony at the store.

Doris Strick­land, Di­rec­tor of the United Way of Cov­ing­ton-New­ton County, will also at­tend the event. “We are grate­ful for Wa­chovia’s sup­port and know that this do­na­tion will help us make a greater im­pact in our lo­cal com­mu­nity,” Strick­land said.

The large store re­places a smaller store the bank out­grew, lo­cated at 3261 U.S. Hwy 278 NE. The 13 em­ploy­ees who worked in the other store will serve cus­tomers at the new lo­ca­tion.

“I am ex­cited for our cus­tomers and em­ploy­ees that we are able to build this new store in the Cov­ing­ton Mar­ket,” said Jim English, North­east Ge­or­gia District Man­ager. “This brings to­gether the strength of Wells Fargo and Wa­chovia’s rep­u­ta­tion for su­pe­rior cus­tomer ser­vice.”

With the open­ing of the Cov­ing­ton Mar­ket Place store, Wa­chovia will have eight bank stores in the North­east Ge­or­gia mar­ket.

The new lo­ca­tion will op­er­ate from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mon­day through Fri­day and 9 a.m. to 12 noon on Satur­day.
