If you bank with Wachovia, you’re probably already aware that the San Francisco-based Wells Fargo has taken over Wachovia banks on the East coast. The company bought the local bank in Fall of 2008, during the height of the nation’s economic crisis. Wells Fargo is slowly going through the Eastern seaboard to change the names on it’s buildings, cards, and more. Thus far, the change has not touched Charlotte, but can be seen in other large Southern cities like Atlanta.
The change is on it’s way to Charlotte, but as a recent article in The Sacramento Bee reveals via The Charlotte Observer, it won’t be until much later this year. The Wells Fargo logo will next appear in Florida throughout June and July. After that, it will hit Virginia locations in August, then Maryland, South Carolina, and then Washington DC in September. Charlotte’s changeover is not anticipated until October, affecting “868 branches, nearly 1,500 ATMs, and more than 47,000 employees.”
