TAMPA, Fla. – Dec. 15, 2020 – Regions Bank on Tuesday announced the opening of its newly renovated West Tampa-Hillsborough branch, where local bankers provide personal service enhanced by newly updated, more convenient technology.
The branch is at the corner of West Hillsborough Avenue and North Habana Avenue. Renovations began last fall to turn the branch into one of the most modern Regions locations in Florida. While construction was underway, a modular branch facility served customers on site.
“Today’s customers are savvy and expect top-notch service that meets their banking needs,” said Michael Jones, market executive for Regions Bank in Tampa. “The tools available in this newly renovated branch combine that level of service with modern technology and the experience of our local bankers to make banking easier than ever before.”
We want the people of West Tampa to know that we are their bank devoted to making their financial lives better.
Ediel Hernandez, West Tampa-Hillsborough branch manager
When customers arrive at the renovated location, they will no longer have to wait in a traditional teller line. Instead, customers are greeted personally by a Regions banker as they enter. In addition to opening accounts and processing transactions, the financial professionals at the branch are ready to have in-depth conversations with customers to help them map out how to reach short-term and long-term financial goals.
“We look forward to welcoming our loyal customers back and greeting new customers into our upgraded space,” said Ediel Hernandez, branch manager. “We want the people of West Tampa to know that we are their bank devoted to making their financial lives better.”
The branch is the latest in the Tampa Bay area to offer Regions’ Video Banking ATM service. Through a walk-up Video Banking ATM at the branch, 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, including evenings, weekends and holidays. The location also includes three drive-up DepositSmart ATMs that can be used to withdraw cash or make deposits of checks or cash at any time, around the clock.
“This kind of convenience comes at a crucial time for our customers and offers options that are appreciated in a time of social distancing,” said Sandra Young, consumer banking executive. “Our technology makes it easier for customers to bank how they want and when they want, in a safe, clean environment.”
While in-person services are available during regular branch hours, customers are encouraged to use the Make an Appointment feature on Regions.com ahead of their visit as Regions locations continue to limit capacity as a safety precaution amid COVID-19.
