Touting Mooresville as a "thriving market with a bright future," Southern Community Bank and Trust (NASDAQ: SCMF) (NASDAQ: SCMFO) has begun its expansion into the city by opening a new full service Financial Center at 210 Knob Hill Road (at the corner of Williamson Road). The new office is fully staffed in all services the bank offers, which means customers will get quick, on-site advice and approval for personal, business, mortgage, investment and trust services.
Southern Community's president, Jeff Clark, said the new center is off to a flying start. "We have been anticipating this day for a long time. Mooresville is one of the fastest-growing cities in the state, and to say that we are excited about the opening of the Knob Hill Road center would be an understatement. We fully expect this to be just the first step in a long relationship with the Lake Norman community."
Karen Floyd, Southern Community's Lake Norman Regional Executive, is excited that the Winston-Salem-based bank has finally opened a full-service office in a city with such an opportunity for growth. "We have an excellent mix of seasoned Southern Community people and individuals who have had valuable experience at other financial institutions. We are eager to demonstrate our commitment to service and our one-on-one basis of understanding and satisfying customer needs," Floyd said.
As part of the financial center's opening, Southern Community is offering four lucky winners the opportunity to contribute to the community. The Your Southern Community Grand Opening Giveaway is a promotion supporting the Lowe's YMCA in Mooresville and its Childwatch program. Anyone can register at the new Financial Center to win the right to have one of four Childwatch tiles dedicated on their behalf or for someone they'd like to honor. Each of the four winners will also receive a complimentary Southern Community savings account with a $1,000 opening deposit.
In addition to the Your Southern Community giveaway, the YMCA will also benefit from a major local gift from Southern Community. As part of the bank's introduction to Mooresville, it has sponsored the completion of the new women's locker facility at the Lowe's YMCA.
