Worthington National Announces New Location in Colleyville
Locally-Owned Bank Continues to Expand and Launches Latest Renovation Project
FORT WORTH, Texas -- February 20, 2008 -- Tarrant County-based Worthington National Bank is proud to announce they will be moving their Colleyville offices to a new location in Colleyville, to accommodate the bank’s continued local growth. The bank has purchased the old Eckerd’s building, located at 4814 Colleyville Boulevard on the southwest corner of Colleyville Boulevard and Glade Road, and will renovate and re-design the building before moving in later this year.
Re-construction will begin this month on the 9,500 square foot building, which has been vacant for over seven years. The new bank will have a community room, available for use by non-profit groups, and a grand piano in the lobby, available for piano recitals. Additionally, 3,600 square feet of the building will be available for lease.
"We are excited about Worthington National’s growth in Colleyville," said Elsie Gunter, CEO of Worthington National Bank’s Colleyville location. “We’re grateful to be part of such a wonderful community and look forward to breathing new life into this corner of town."
“We are not like most of our competitors, who are here from out of state or out of town,” said Greg Morse, CEO of Worthington National Bank. “They’re here milking our communities, and we’re here to help make them.”
Dedicated to preserving local heritage, history and art, Worthington National Bank has received several awards for its building restoration work at its Fort Worth and Arlington locations, including the Texas Historical Foundation Judge James Wheat Award, the Texas Downtown Association President’s Award and the Texas Bankers Foundation Cornerstone Award.
