Wachovia Bank Card Services said it plans to open a credit card customer service center in Chesapeake, Va.

The move comes on the heels of Wachovia Corp.'s agreements to acquire Virginia-based Central Fidelity Banks Inc. and Jefferson Bankshares. Wachovia plans to open the center in the first quarter, after the mergers are completed.

The operation will occupy one-fourth of a 50,000-square-foot operating facility now occupied by Central Fidelity. It is expected to employ more than 100 people by the end of 1998.
