NEPORT NEWS-A new full-service bank is now open in Newport News.

On June 20, Southern Bank opened its newest branch on Rock Landing Drive in Newport News.

“We are so excited to expand our banking office on the Peninsula,” said Trent Dudley, senior vice president and regional executive, in a statement. “This will now be the first branch on the Peninsula, which will bring us to eleven Virginia branches.”

The new branch will be helmed by the team of Ben Ellington, city leader; Andrew Hack, commercial lender; and Lorin Burge, relationship Banker.

The new Southern Bank branch in Newport News is located at 11832 Rock Landing Dr., Ste 104.

“The new full-service facility is also a reflection of Southern Bank’s overall long-term commitment to the region,” said Ellington.

Southern Bank, which began in 1901, now has more than 60 branch and ATM locations in North Carolina and Virginia. In Hampton Roads, there are multiple locations on the Southside in Chesapeake, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
