Wells Fargo opens at Thomas Crossroads Kroger

This weekend marks Wells Fargo’s first expansion of its banking network in Newnan, using a bank store format that is new for the company in Georgia and the eastern United States.

The bank store, located inside of the Thomas Crossroads Kroger, is laid out with room for five tellers and three bankers to help customers make the banking process even more convenient.

“We believe our customers want to be able to meet personally with a banker” said Awale Rage, area president for south central Georgia. “We want it to be easy for them to do that.”

Wells Fargo celebrated its grand opening with a $5,000 donation to Newnan Goodwill Industries to support the group’s new workforce training centers, in an effort to improve job readiness in fields including retail, customer service and hospitality.

The grand opening also unveils a very unique mural, depicting the history of the Coweta area. The historically accurate, graphically designed murals are meant to emphasize the local connections of Wells Fargo to the communities.

Images for the mural came from the Georgia Archives and the Library of Congress, and include views of historic East Court Square, the Mary Ray Memorial School, the Coweta Courthouse and the Newnan Fire Department.

Wells Fargo currently has four bank stores in Coweta County and some 45 team members.
