    Wachovia branches are rebranded as Wells Fargo

    Wachovia branches are rebranded as Wells Fargo
    Wachovia conversion to Wells Fargo now complete in Virginia

    Last night the temporary Wachovia banners were removed from newly erected Wells Fargo signs throughout the Fredericksburg area. Wachovia customers in Virginia are now Wells Fargo customers, but Fredericksburg district manager Jessica Pierce said it will be a "seamless transition."


    No word in the article on a change to their gun policy.

    The Wachovia in my area is the one where I frequent. Several years ago, I almost dropped them but since I had just switched from BB&T, I thought I stay the course for a while. Then when talking to one of their people who was obviously a gun person, he mentioned that the small circular "No Guns" symbol on their door had a revolver depicted in it so just carry a semi-auto in with you) his suggestion.

    However shortly thereafter, with frequent checking on my part, they began to operate under the policies and procedures of Wells Fargo and were for all intents and purposes a Wells Fargo operation. That's when I began to CC into that bank. I noticed last Tuesday, August 1, all of the "Non-No" little circular signs had been removed from their door (I already had known for a while that the Wells Fargo sign was going up on August 6). Ands yep, this morning when I was close to it I noticed the WF signs out on the building.

    Everything I have seen indicates that Wells Fargo will be RKBA friendly - operate in accordance with local laws.

    There may still be some residual "old guard" that will require additional training though.

    I don't know. I read somewhere that WF had a change of policy. I don't deal with them so I'll leave that up to others to figure out.

    The two Wachovia banks I've been in during the past two weeks have both had the "gun buster" signs removed. The only prohibition remaining was a "no smoking within 25' " sign. One was on West Broad street in Richmond and the other one is located in Petersburg. The Wachovia in the town of Amelia courthouse has, as far as I know, never had a "gun buster" sign.

    While they may restrict smoking on their property, I submit that they may NOT do so on the public sidewalks. That opinion is based on Users comments a regarding public right-of-way.

    MCV is attempting to do the same thing.

    I was driving around Fredericksburg yesterday looking for updated signage (which by the way, revealed no gun buster signs on any of the branches I visited.)

    In doing so, I ran across a now-Wells Fargo branch, literally next to a BB&T branch. Although the BB&T branch didn't have a gun buster sign on their door either, their anti-gun policy is well known.

    I can't help but wonder which bank a robber would choose to rob, given this choice of two so close together... Of course the street photo still shows the old Wachovia sign, but it is now Wells Fargo.
