City National Bank hosts Business After Hours

BECKLEY — City National Bank in Beckley opened its doors to other members of the business community Thursday.

The Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce’s Business After Hours events are designed to inspire camaraderie among local business people, said Abigail Scott, manager of City National. The bank provides a good place to get to know other top business people in Beckley, many of whom are customers of the bank, Scott said. 

“I think our role in the community is customer service and meeting our customers needs with whatever they need in banking,” Scott said. “That’s providing good service and plenty of locations to make it convenient for them, which we do.”

There are seven locations in the Beckley area, Scott said.

City National has 68 branches throughout West Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio. The company is headquartered in Cross Lanes.

“We’re very competitive, even with the local banks,” Scott said. “Decisions are made locally. ... That gives us an edge over our competitors because we are West Virginia-minded.

“Service is very important, and we take great pride in it. We’re also very competitive on our products and pricing.”

After Hours events are intended to build relationships among local businesses in the Beckley and Raleigh County.

“I think it’s a good way to reach out to the community,” Scott said. “We treat them to nice hors d’oeuvres, and we have our money machine here.”

The money machine gave people an opportunity to snatch a few bucks from the air as money was blown around them. There was also a giveaway in the form of a “money bouquet,” the grand prize.

“This is just a way to say thank you to all those who bank with us, and thank you to the community,” Scott said. “These businesses provide tremendous support for our community.”

The event was hosted at the One Park Avenue location in Beckley.
