SunTrust customers received news this week the Centerville branch at 4027 Halifax Road in South Boston will close its doors May 24.
The news came by mail in the form of a letter to customers signed by Area Manager Stacey F. Deaton.
According to Deaton, customers’ accounts will not be affected, and no interruption of service would be experienced.
Mike McCoy of SunTrust Corporate and Financial Issues said Thursday SunTrust is “constantly refining change” in the company, and the closing of the Centerville location will affect three employees.
Those three employees will be eligible to apply for job positions as they become available at nearby SunTrust locations, said McCoy.
“We are committed to assisting them,” he added.
The letters notifying customers of the closing were dated Feb. 15 and mailed out earlier this week, McCoy said.
The company is working to make the transition as “easy and convenient” as possible for all customers, the letter states.
“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,” said Deaton.
Deaton recommended customers use the nearby branch located at 410 Main Street in South Boston.
“You may also bank 24 hours a day, seven days a week by visiting suntrust.com or calling 800.SUNTRUST.”
For more information, customers can call the Centerville branch at 434-572-2022.
“We will answer your questions and do whatever we can to meet your expectations,” Deaton said.
Anyone wishing to comment on SunTrust closing the Centerville branch can direct comments to: Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Attn: Ms. Chapelle Davis, Vice Prsident, Department of Supervision and Regulation, 1000 Peachtree Street, N. E., Atlanta, GA 30309—4470.
However, Deaton added in the letter, “The Federal Reserve does not have the authority to approve or prevent this branch closing.”
