“A South Carolina banking institution with roots deep in the Pee Dee is moving to Florence announced bank officials last week. Carolina Bank will relocate the bank’s headquarters and administrative offices, along with a new retail branch, to downtown Florence to better serve the expanding Florence market. The move, which will take place in the Fall of 2017, is only the first phase of a far-reaching growth plan that also includes modernizing existing branches and introducing new technological products and services.

Carolina Bank will continue to operate its retail branch in Darlington. “This move will allow us to provide more focused service to our customers and potential customers in a growing market. The development downtown is exciting and we are thrilled to be a part of it,” said Rick Beasley, president of Carolina Bank. “However, we remain committed to our customers in Darlington and our other branch locations.

We will continue to serve our communities with the exceptional customer and banking services they have come to expect from us.” Under the expansion plan, Carolina Bank will shift its administrative and training staff, as well as the lending, information technology, and mortgage departments, to a new location at 185 West Evans Street by the Fall of 2017. Though most of the employees will relocate from the current headquarters, up to 20 new positions will also be created.”
