BB&T to close Williamston branch


April 26, 2017 – BB&T announced this week that they plan to close their branch office in Williamston later this year.
“We recognize that any business closing can be an emotional issue for a community. For that reason we do not take the decision to close a financial center lightly,” said David R. White, BB&T Vice President Corporate Communications. “We have implemented a rigorous process whereby we continually review and evaluate the viability, convenience and physical conditions, among other factors, of our financial centers. We do this to ensure all our financial centers meet our clients’ needs, provide a leading role in the community and maintain our responsibility to shareholders.”
“For several years, BB&T has reviewed the business strength of our financial center in Williamston. Based on many factors, including client usage patterns, the decision was made to close the branch,” White said. “Our Williamston clients can still take advantage of a number of convenient services including: Phone24, online banking at or our digital banking platform U by BB&T. In addition, the Piedmont financial center is approximately ten minutes from the Williamston branch and we look forward to continuing to serve our clients there.”
According to White, there will be no BB&T associate layoffs as a result of the closing of the office in August of this year.
