Staff of Community Bank & Trust of Florida and local dignitaries donned hard hats and gold shovels as they tossed soil in the air. Approximately 40 people – and a bull dozer – were on hand to celebrate the ceremonial groundbreaking of the new Pinellas Plaza bank office in the Villages on Tuesday, August 27th.
“We are extremely excited to become a part of this fast-growing area of The Villages,” said Hugh Dailey, president of Community Bank & Trust of Florida. “This office reinforces our commitment to the people and businesses of this area by offering high-quality products and services while creating at least five new jobs in the community.”
The 3,500 square foot office, which will be located at 2535 Burnsed Boulevard, will be a full-service facility offering consumer and business products and services including commercial and residential lending, investment, wealth management and trust services. In addition, the branch will have multiple drive-thru lanes, safe deposit boxes and a 24-hour ATM for customer convenience.
The bank currently has a Villages Office located at 2285 Parr Dr. (County Rd. 466). Construction of the new building will begin in August and the office is slated to open early 2014.
