OXFORD, Miss. – Aug. 26, 2020 – Regions Bank on Wednesday announced the opening of its Oxford-Jackson Avenue branch, a location that combines personal service from local bankers with greater convenience and updated technology.
The branch at 1931 W. Jackson Ave. is one of the most modern Regions facilities in Mississippi. The new location was chosen based on several factors including customer traffic and convenient access.
“Regions Bank is committed to Oxford, and the opening of this location represents a new chapter in our bank’s history of service to Lafayette County,” said Chris Steiner, Oxford market executive for Regions. “We have given this building new life with two key priorities in mind: delivering more personal attention to our customers while offering modern technology that makes banking easier.”
With the opening of this location, Regions is moving branch-banking services from the company’s Courthouse Square and Westside Center locations into the new facility. The Courthouse Square location will remain open as offices for Regions Mortgage and Commercial Banking personnel who serve local homeowners and businesses. Also, Regions’ ATM on the Oxford Square will remain in place.
We live here, we work here, and we are invested in the success of Oxford and our customers
Cindi Baddour, Oxford Branch Manager
The new branch is notable not only for what it has – but also for what it doesn’t. There is no waiting in a traditional teller line. Instead, people are greeted personally by a Regions banker upon arrival, and all branch personnel are ready to provide financial services that go beyond routine transactions. Through financial advice, guidance and education, each team member is ready to listen to customers’ unique goals and help them develop a roadmap toward reaching those goals.
In addition, the branch becomes the latest to offer Regions Video Banking ATMs. At the branch’s two Video Banking ATMs, customers can choose standard ATM service – or they can connect with a Regions Video Banker via live, two-way video for personal service during expanded hours.
Regions Video Bankers can answer customers’ questions, provide account maintenance, process transactions, and more – all in real time. They are available from 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. CT on weekdays. They are also available on Saturdays from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Holiday hours are also 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Further, the branch features two Regions DepositSmart ATMs™. Through these machines, customers can use the ATMs to not only withdraw cash – but also make deposits of cash or checks at any time, around the clock.
“Our enhanced technology offers major benefits for customers, especially during this time of social distancing,” said David Cayson, consumer banking manager for Regions. “We want our customers to know they can count on us to deliver the services and solutions they need, when they need them.”
The branch’s lobby hours are from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Friday. Given limited capacity as a safety precaution amid COVID-19, customers are encouraged to schedule an appointment through the Make an Appointment option on Regions.com.
Branch Manager Cindi Baddour said her team is proud to welcome neighbors to the new facility.
“We live here, we work here, and we are invested in the success of Oxford and our customers,” Baddour said. “Regions Bank can deliver a variety of solutions to help people and businesses prosper. We look forward to welcoming our longtime customers to this amazing facility, while also reaching new customers with Regions’ superior levels of service.”
