BB&T opens a new branch Monday, April 8 on Mount Vernon Avenue.
The new location in the 1900 block of Mount Vernon Avenue is located in the two vacant storefronts next to Fabulous Frocks of Alexandria.
The branch will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. The branch will be closed on Sunday. It also includes an enclosed ATM on the corner of Mount Vernon and E. Bellefonte avenues.
Bungalow Homewares Gallery, which closed in 2011, previously occupied one of the storefronts.
Bank officials had hoped to open the new location during the fourth quarter of 2012 but permitting issues held things up, according to BB&T Assistant Vice President Hector Hernandez.
