Tampa, FL – Tampa Mayor Jane Castor joined Fifth Third Bank executives today to celebrate the grand opening of its Gandy Banking Center at 4319 Gandy Blvd. on the corner of Gandy and Manhattan in Tampa. Mayor Castor recognized Fifth Third and the South Tampa Chamber for their commitment to the region and spoke about Tampa’s investment in infrastructure in the area.
The Gandy Banking Center is one of two new next-generation-designed Fifth Third locations to open in Tampa within the last six months. Fifth Third now operates 43 banking center locations in Tampa Bay.
“We are excited to be able to further serve our South Tampa community with this new location,” said Cary Putrino, North Florida regional president. “To open two locations in Tampa during the pandemic demonstrates Fifth Third’s steadfast commitment to growth in the region.”
The Gandy Banking Center includes 2,400 square feet and offers a complete array of banking services with one drive-thru lane, a drive-up ATM, night depository and a next-generation interior that includes:
• Mobile bankers using technology that allows them to meet and serve customers in a variety of settings.
• A tech wall featuring a dynamic digital screen.
• Flexible meeting and seating areas with layers of privacy that can adjust depending on the need and the type of conversation taking place.
“We know banking centers are still relevant to customers, although they are being used differently than in previous generations,” said Putrino. “We will continue to deliver a holistic customer experience through this blended approach of digital and interpersonal interactions.”
