South Atlantic Bank to Host Ribbon Cutting at Pawleys Island Office
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, January 22, 2015 – South Atlantic Bank will officially cut the ribbon at its Pawleys Island office on Thursday, January 29th at 9 a.m. The new office is located at 10970 Ocean Highway, adjacent to the Hammock Shops.
Bank officials, including K. Wayne Wicker, chairman and chief executive officer, R. Scott Plyler, president, Richard N. Burch, executive vice president and chief financial officer, and Drew S. Johnson, senior vice president and Waccamaw Neck regional executive, along with Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce chairman Jeff Smith, will be on hand to greet customers and welcome them to the bank’s new home.
Built by Georgetown-based Coastal Structures and designed by ESD Architecture of Charlotte, the building is set on 1.15 acres at the corner of Lachicotte Road and Ocean Highway. The 4,000 square-foot office is a one-story version of the bank’s Myrtle Beach and Murrells Inlet locations, complete with the pulley-operated ceiling fans, deep porticos, and louvered storm shutters. Customer amenities include a drive-up automated teller machine (ATM) and a comfortable reception area with free Wi-Fi and hot coffee.
The building also uses technology to enhance the customer’s banking experience. For example, a user-friendly kiosk will allow customers to learn about the bank’s products and services, including online and mobile banking. At the teller line, a cash recycler streamlines the processing of deposits for faster, more efficient service. Additionally, customers are able to access their safe deposit boxes without assistant from branch personnel via a new biometric access system. To gain entry to the safe deposit room, the customer places his hand on the reader and enters a personal code, then uses his key to open the box. The overall branch design emphasizes easy, convenient service.
Refreshments will be served immediately following the ribbon cutting and visitors to the office will have the opportunity to enter a prize drawing for an Apple® iPad Air®. No purchase is necessary and entrants must be age 18 or older to participate. South Atlantic Bank employees and their families are not eligible.
Hours at the Pawleys Island office are Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., with drive-through hours extended on Friday until 5:30 p.m. For more information, call the office at 843.849.2049.
