Our Bristol Branch is Moving and Growing
Our Bristol Branch will soon move into a spacious new building just off I-81 Exit 7 and Highway 11 across from the main entrance to the Bristol Walmart Supercenter. The new Branch location is at 7 Clear Creek Road, Bristol, Virginia. The target for being open for business in the new location is mid-July.
The new bank building has 4,080 square feet of space, four drive-through lanes and a drive-up ATM. Over 400 safe deposit boxes will be available.
Bev Sharrett, Branch Manager and her staff at the current location of our Bristol Branch will move into the new facility and retain their current positions.
“Our new well-designed bank building will offer speedy drive through service and ample interior space for walk-in customers and private meetings and transactions,” Ms. Sharrett said. “Our temporary location has served us well but we’re looking forward to moving into a larger and more convenient facility.”
“Bristol is a growing and dynamic business community,” said Ed Stringer, President and CEO of The Bank of Marion. “This is especially true of the area around I-81, Exit 7. Our new Branch Bank represents an investment in the people and businesses in that area. We couldn’t be happier about this further expansion of our banking system.” He cited customer convenience and easy access as deciding factors in the choice of the 7 Clear Creek location for the new Branch.
