ATLANTA -- Bank South began extending its banking hours in the Atlanta area Thursday, with service available from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays at its 59 drive-up teller windows.

The drive-up hours used to start at 9 a.m.

"Now our customers can bank on their way to work and even later in the vening," said Lee M. Sessions Jr., principal operating officer for retail and trust banking. "We're allowing our customers direct access on their own terms, when it's convenient for them."

Bank South also has supermarket branches open seven days a week. The closing time at those branches has been extended one hour, to 9 p.m.
