New credit union branch in Florence will be unconventional

June 9, 2018

FLORENCE, S.C. – SPC Credit Union broke ground on May 30 on a new Florence branch that will open by the end of 2018.

The groundbreaking for the “Branch of the Future” was held at the site of the new branch, 1312 Celebration Blvd. in Florence, across from Assurant Specialty Property.

On this project, SPC is working with Level 5 of Atlanta as the general contractor and the architect firm Novus.

“SPC has served the Florence area since 2007 in our current location on McIver Road,” said Linda Weatherford, president and chief executive officer of SPC. “The new location and branch will provide a greater opportunity for us to engage the local community and provide better access to existing and future members. We are excited to be a part of the growth and development of the Florence market and look forward to our continued partnerships with the Florence community.”

This “Branch of the Future” will represent the latest advancements in the financial branch model. The branch will have no conventional teller line and will incorporate an open-concept layout with off-site video conferencing and hospitality space.

“As technology and consumer needs change, so must our business model,” Weatherford said. “Our mission is built upon compassion, connection and community. The goal for the new branch is to create a welcoming space where everyone can discover products and services that will improve their financial well-being.”

Founded in 1941, SPC employs 67 individuals across five branches, serving anyone who lives, works or attends school in Darlington, Marlboro and Florence counties. For more information, visit spccu.org.
