Wells Fargo Celebrates Official Conversion From Wachovia
They made the change two years ago... but thanks to new signs and a fresh coat of red paint... everyone will know about it. Wachovia Bank is officially Wells Fargo Bank.
Today, the company celebrated the official change with a ribbon cutting, barbershop quartet, a University of Florida step team, money for several non-profit groups including The Red Cross and The Food Bank.
Wells Fargo bought out Wachovia in late December 2008.
But officials say they wanted to make sure they had all their ducks in a row before they changed the signage.
Staff from the banks re-painted the old signs in all nine Wells Fargo locations in Gainesville.
They were part of the 369 Florida locations to fully convert this past weekend.
The remaining 303 locations, which are in south florida, will begin converting on July 9.
