Right now, if you're a customer of Chase Bank, you have to drive all the way to Levelland to do any business. I know a few people who have never been thrilled with that -- especially folks that moved to Lubbock from other major cities that had Chase locations.

But all of that is about to change.

Chase has announced they will open their first Lubbock branch in the former Starbucks location at 801 University Ave. It will be a full-service branch according to Chase, and they are expecting to be open by the late summer.

According to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, it will join 25 other banks in the Lubbock area.

Thanks to my friend Sarah Self-Walbrick over at The A-J for the heads up on this one!
