United Bank opened its new location in Brewton on Mon., Nov. 14.

The new office, located at 821 Douglas Ave., will provide access for residents looking to buy, build or refinance their homes and owners looking to open or expand their small business. Consumers will also find convenient access to auto and personal lending options among the services provided at the new location.

“By expanding into the Brewton area, we hope to make it easier for our existing customers and those looking for new options and opportunities to do business with us. This expansion puts us on the path to providing full service banking across Escambia County,” said United Bank President and CEO, Robert R. Jones, III.
