April 5, 2019

HUNTINGTON — Now you can check on your financial and physical health at the same location after Caleb Gibson with Edward Jones Financial Advisor opened his new location in the Huntington Internal Medicine Group (HIMG) building in the 5100 block of U.S. Route 60 in Huntington.

“We actually relocated here on March 12, but wanted to have a grand reopening to celebrate the move,” Gibson said.

The office was previously located in the 9th Street Plaza in downtown Huntington.

“That branch had been open there since 2002 or 2003,” Gibson said. “I had been there since 2011.”

Gibson said the new location better accommodates his client base.

“We have lots of clients from the Barboursville area and we also had some parking issues downtown,” he said. “This is just a much more convenient location with lots of parking for our customers from both the Huntington and Barboursville areas.”

The new location is approximately 1,000 square feet.

“We now have a conference room with large screen televisions that we’re able to utilize,” Gibson added.

Mark Morgan, CEO of HIMG, said the space became available after HIMG relocated its pharmacy.

“Caleb Gibson with Edward Jones reached out to us about moving into the facility,” Morgan said. “We are so excited to have them in the facility.”

Edward Jones Financial Advisor offers personalized services that include preparing for, and living in, retirement, paying for education, estate considerations and other financial planning and advice.

In addition to Gibson, the office staff includes Sean Hornbuckle, also a financial adviser, and William Black, branch office administrator.

TACO BELL: Construction continues on a new Taco Bell at Kinetic Park in Huntington.

“The Taco Bell being built at Kinetic is also a new prototype called the Urban Edge,” said Erik Martin, with Sun Culinary, LLC, owners of the new business.

Martin says the planned opening day will be sometime in May.

“This location will be approximately 2,100 square feet with a total of between 36 to 40 team members staffing the restaurant,” Martin said.

The company also owns the Taco Bell in Kenova and is finishing a new Taco Bell prototype in Louisa, Kentucky, according to Martin.

“As of now we expect our operating hours to start at 6:30 a.m. serving our popular breakfast items and closing the day at 1 a.m. for those looking for that late night Taco Bell fix,” Martin said.

He added that there will be a couple of unique ideas that will make this location a one-of-a-kind experience for customers that will focus on its surroundings at Kinetic Park.

“If you’ve visited our Kenova, West Virginia 1, location then you are aware how we like to put our own stamp on our projects and this one will be no exception,” he said.
