Aquesta held a grand opening celebration of the bank’s fourth branch location on Brawley School Road in Mooresville, NC. The branch, which is located in the Mayhew Shopping Center in front of Bloom (at 1078 Brawley School Road) opened its doors on May 25 and is fully operational as a full service bank providing outstanding customer service and convenience to the Mooresville community.
Attendees at the grand opening celebration participated in a joint ribbon held by the Lake Norman and Mooresville South-Iredell Chambers. Kids enjoyed a money grab booth, moon bounce, and popcorn! Customers who opened a checking account between June 27 and July 2 also received $50 cash.
Those attending the bank’s grand opening also entered to win a hot air balloon ride for two! The lucky winner of the drawing was Ryan Alexander. Ryan is a Junior at Western Carolina University, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in English. During his summer breaks away from college, he is a lifeguard and pool manager for Aquatech Pool Management. Ryan is a native of Mooresville, and was raised in the shadow of the lake that has inspired Aquesta Bank. He entered the drawing for the balloon ride with zero anticipation of winning, and was shocked at being the recipient of a spectacular hot air balloon ride over scenic Lake Norman or Yadkin Valley. Ryan was the first new customer at The Brawley School Road location at the soft opening on May 25th.
The bank also rolled out the Aquesta Concierge Club at the grand opening,which is being offered exclusively to the bank’s best customers to recognize and reward those who have a strong relationship with the bank. Participants in the Concierge Club will receive invitations to wine tastings, cooking classes, sailing lessons and more!
