Bank to close Centerville branch

South Boston News
SoVaNow.com / February 21, 2013
SunTrust Bank will close its Centerville branch on May 24, a decision that will not affect operations at the remaining downtown bank location.

SunTrust customers received letters Tuesday notifying them of the closure of the Centerville location, which has been in operation since 1980. Richmond-based SunTrust assured customers that their accounts will not be affected and there will be no interruption of service.

“Our top priority at SunTrust Bank is to provide the most convenient services to fulfill all of your banking needs, and we are committed to making this change as easy as possible for you,” the letter to customers reads. “We have a nearby branch that will provide the same services you have been accustomed to at the Centerville branch” The letter was attributed to Stacey F. Deaton, Area Manger for SunTrust

The downtown South Boston branch is located at 410 Main Street.

According to Michael McCoy of SunTrust in Atlanta, the Centerville branch currently employs three persons. He said his bank is committed to working with displaced employees, who will be eligible to post applications for further employment with SunTrust as positions become available.

McCoy said SunTrust constantly is examining branch activity and possible market growth potential. He noted SunTrust does not own the Centerville property, instead leasing it.

One upset bank customer who asked not to be named said she plans to send the traffic counts in front of both the Centerville and downtown South Boston branches to the CEO of SunTrust. She speculated that there are more businesses in the Centerville area that are SunTrust customers than in South Boston.

According to the Feb. 15,letter, SunTrust has more than 1,500 branches and more than 2,800 ATMs in 11 states and the District of Columbia.

to serve its customers. .

Deaton’s letter notes that customers may still bank 24 hours a day, seven days a week by visiting suntrust.com or by calling 800.SUNTRUST.
