A Georgia-based financial center announced the opening of its second South Carolina branch on Spartanburg’s Main Street, which will also serve as the corporate headquarters of Southern Financial Corp.
The Southern Bank new branch is located at 468 E. Main St. in downtown Spartanburg. The 3,800-square-foot structure has a sizable parking lot for customers and a single-car drive-thru. The Southern Bank renovated the space to create offices, meeting spaces, a safekeeping room with deposit boxes and a new facade for the building’s exterior, according to a news release.
“We are thrilled to be opening Southern Financial Corporation’s headquarters and The Southern Bank’s second operating branch in the state,” said Jamin Hujik, Southern Financial Corp. and The Southern Bank CEO. “As a Spartanburg resident, I am proud of The Southern Bank’s ability to be a part of Spartanburg’s growth and continue our expansion into the Upstate.”
This latest opening continues The Southern Bank’s goal of filling what it sees as a community banking gap in South Carolina by opening new branches across the Upstate , the release stated. Along with the Spartanburg branch, The Southern Bank operates an additional branch in Greenville, with a branch in Aiken under construction, the news release stated.
