Greer-based CBL State Savings Bank will locate a loan office in Landrum to be opened on October 1, according to President and CEO Jennifer T. Jones.
The office will be located at 920 East Rutherford Street. Initially, only the bank’s loan products, including first and second residential mortgages, equity lines of credit, land loans, construction/permanent loans, commercial real estate loans and more, will be available. Other products will be offered later.
Loan Specialist Angel Forrester will be the office’s main customer contact. Other CBL officers and employees will staff the office on a rotating basis.
CBL first opened in Greer 1907 to serve borrowers and savers in and around the area. According to Jones, Landrum was a natural choice for the bank’s first location outside its hometown.
“We have a couple of employees and directors who live in or near Landrum, so we have close local ties to the community,” said Jones. “Landrum is a lot like Greer in many ways. We love its small-town environment and its abundance of positive energy, and we look forward to building both financial and personal relationships with its citizens. Moreover, we look forward to becoming an integral part of the community by supporting its schools, businesses and nonprofits.”
