Fifth Third Bank to open


Fifth Third Bank, a well-known chain in the Midwest and Florida, will be opening a branch in Turkey Creek.

“We have two offices here in Knoxville ... one in Onyx Pointe ... and we just opened a Fountain City branch in December,” Bobby Stockner, Fifth Third spokesman, said.

“We’ve been here [in Knoxville] since November 2005.

“We hope to be in several locations throughout the city before too long,” he added, mentioning the possibility of delays because of the economic downturn.

Stockner hopes construction will begin soon, but couldn’t give an exact date.

“This is just such a crazy economic environment that there’s no telling,” he said.


Fifth Third was founded in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1858, and became “Fifth Third” around the turn of the century. It classifies itself as “full-service.”

The bank offers private and commercial banking, mortgage lending, cash management services and merchant Mastercards and Visas.

“I believe we’re in the top dozen [banks] in terms of size.

“A lot of people around here don’t know about Fifth Third but it’s a big bank in the midwest,” Stockner said.

The bank has more than 30 branches in the Nashville area and others in Memphis.

Stockner did not know how large the Parkside Drive branch would be.
