Regions Bank has announced a major renovation for the company’s Westside Clarksdale branch at 109 Anderson Boulevard.
Over the coming months construction will transformed the branch into a more modern banking facility designed to meet the needs of today’s consumers. A modular Regions branch, will open Monday, Feb. 3. to serve Westside Clarksdale customers during renovations.
“At Regions, we are focused on making banking easier and more meaningful for people across the Delta, from our online and mobile services to our modern branch network,” said Keith Mitchell, North Mississippi Market Executive for Regions. “This branch will become the latest Regions location to combine personal service from local bankers with more updated technology. The result is a convenient branch that’s built around the needs of today’s consumers.”
While renovations are underway, a temporary modular branch will be on-site to serve customers. The modular facility functions as a fully staffed bank branch with Regions associates offering a wide range of financial services. The facility also includes an ATM.
The modular branch will remain on-site until the opening of the renovated facility, which is expected in early summer.
“During the renovation, our team of branch associates will continue meeting the financial needs of our customers in Clarksdale,” said Michele Fondren, Regions’ Westside Clarksdale branch manager. “We have been carefully planning this renovation and are excited to move forward with renovations to the Westside Clarksdale branch. We look forward to unveiling a completely redesigned, more modern facility that will reflect our continued commitment to quality service and technological innovation.”
As part of the renovation, the exterior of the branch will be updated to one of Regions’ latest branch designs. Inside, the branch will feature an open layout. Rather than customers having to wait in line across from the teller counter, at the renovated branch, Regions personnel will personally greet customers as they arrive. Each banker at the Westside branch will be able to provide a full range of branch-banking functions, practically eliminating the need for referring customers to other banks for more specialized services.
Further, the renovated branch will become one of the latest to offer Regions’ Video Banking ATMs. In addition to standard ATM services, Video Banking ATMs give customers the option of connecting with a Regions representative via live, two-way video.
Along with processing most teller transactions, Regions Video Bankers can help customers with account maintenance and general inquiries. Regions Video Bankers are available during expanded hours, including weeknights, Saturdays, Sundays and most holidays.
“Regions is committed to Clarksdale, and that’s reflected in the investments we’re making in updating this location,” Mitchell said. “We look forward to welcoming customers for a more convenient, more meaningful branch experience as the renovations are completed later this year.”
