Simply Bank

SimplyBank’s new Decatur location is pictured above. The bank will hold a grand opening on July 31.

The seventh and newest retail branch in Rhea County-based SimplyBank’s growing footprint will be officially christened by company and community leaders Friday, July 31, when SimplyBank Decatur hosts its grand opening ceremony in the historic center of downtown Decatur, Tenn.

The grand opening ceremony will begin at 4 p.m. and conclude at 5 p.m. eastern. Guests are invited to enjoy complimentary, individually-wrapped ice cream from nearby Mayfield Dairy Farms and to pick up free SimplyBank gear during the afternoon’s events.

Guests can also watch events online in a Facebook Live watch party hosted by SimplyBank from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. eastern.

Andrea Norton, a Decatur native, leads SimplyBank Decatur as assistant vice president and branch manager and said she is ready to publicly introduce her hometown to the bank.

“I’m so excited to be able to be part of bringing a local bank to my community that I love so much,” she said. “SimplyBank’s commitment to Meigs County is clear with the work that’s gone into opening this new location, and I’m confident this is going to be a winning combination for many years.”

Norton joined the SimplyBank team in Dec. 2019, having most previously served as vice president and branch manager at People’s Bank of East Tennessee.

Fellow Decatur native Rich Wade, vice president and lending officer, works alongside Norton, leading loan operations at the new SimplyBank Decatur branch.

Located at 120 N. Main Street immediately behind the Meigs County Courthouse, SimplyBank Decatur had a soft opening in June 2020 after many months of renovations to the leased space once home to Meigs County Bank.

Norton and Wade invite guests to visit inside the new branch lobby during the grand opening celebration and to check out the newly-installed state-of-the-art, drive-up ATM.

SimplyBank Decatur is currently open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Grand opening events planned for Friday, July 31, are tentative to social distancing changes and updates. Please follow SimplyBank online and on social media for up-to-date scheduling.
