The Woodlands-based Woodforest National Bank has partnered with San Antonio-based H-E-B, one of the nation’s largest independently owned food retailers, to make retail banking products and services more accessible for consumers in Magnolia.
Woodforest National Bank has opened its first H-E-B in-store retail branch at 13663 FM 1488 in Magnolia, which marks the fourth branch for the bank in that community. The new 500-square-foot in-store branch offers full-service banking with lobby and ATM services for H-E-B shoppers and area consumers. The new branch complements more than 760 Woodforest National Bank locations across 17 states in the U.S.
“Our retail bankers are excited to work alongside H-E-B staff at this new in-store branch because we share the same commitment to providing exceptional customer service,” says Julie Mayrant, president and chief retail officer. “By having a larger presence in the growing Magnolia area, we also help support local jobs and provide convenient access to retail banking services.”
During a recent grand opening celebration with a ribbon-cutting by the Greater Magnolia Parkway Chamber of Commerce and H-E-B, Woodforest National Bank also presented a $10,000 donation from the Woodforest Charitable Foundation to the Society of Samaritans, a charitable organization that provides family services and a food pantry to assist those in need in the Magnolia area.
