FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New Worthington National Bank Location Now Open in Colleyville
Transformation of Old Eckerd's Building Beautifies Corner of Colleyville Boulevard
FORT WORTH, Texas - July 21, 2008 -- Tarrant County-based Worthington National Bank is proud to announce that its new Colleyville location at 4814 Colleyville Boulevard is now open. Worthington purchased the old Eckerd's building, located on the southwest corner of Colleyville Boulevard and Glade Road, in February of this year and has spent the past five months completely renovating and re-designing the 9,500 square foot building.
The new bank, built to accommodate Worthington's growth in Colleyville, has a community room, available for use by non-profit groups, and a grand piano in the lobby, available for piano recitals. Additionally, 4,000 square feet of the building is available for lease.
"We are thrilled to serve our Colleyville customers at our new, convenient location," said Elsie Gunter, CEO of Worthington National Bank's Colleyville location. "The transformation of the building is amazing, and we invite everyone to stop in and see what the fuss is all about."
The new Colleyville bank opens with a dozen employees and features an Old West décor similar to Worthington National Bank's award-winning Sundance Square location. Careful attention has been paid to design details, with features that include custom cut black-and-white marble and antique brass teller cages.
The new bank also showcases a unique collection of twelve accurate replicas of historic Texas flags and a series of five original Texas paintings by artist Raymond Everett. The Everett pieces were originally painted and hung in 1912 in the Rice Hotel in Houston. Six additional western-themed paintings by artist Sophy Brown will also hang at Worthington National's Colleyville location, one of which was recently featured in the July issue of Southwest Art magazine.
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.
