There are plenty of rumors surrounding the construction of a Suntrust Bank branch in the middle of the parking lot of what used to be called the “Liberty Fair Mall.” Right now, the bank has a large presence in Uptown Martinsville and a small branch inside the Kroger store located at the site where the new bank will be built. Although city and bank officials confirm the plans, no one is saying what will happen to the branch inside the grocery store or, more importantly, what might become of the building Uptown. What we do know is Suntrust intends to build a 2,500 square-foot bank near the front entrance to the mall on Commonwealth Boulevard and construction will take about 6 months once it’s underway.
