First National Bank held a ribbon cutting and grand opening late last week for its new location on King Street.

The bank is located at 704 King Street in Old Town in a 4,200-square-foot space that’s been empty since Nando’s moved out last July.

Banks have surged into the voids created when retail and restaurants have left. New bank locations have popped up around Alexandria, with a new Chase Bank opening just around the corner at the corner of King and Washington Streets.

A ribbon cutting for the new First National Bank location was held last Wednesday.
