Blistering cold temperatures and the threat of snow and ice couldn’t stop Navy Federal from opening its newest branch in Spout Springs, North Carolina. Located just north of Fort Bragg, this new branch is bringing new banking options to the growing community around the base.

Located just one mile from the Linden Oaks military housing community, the new branch is located in the Brinkley Commons shopping center, a convenient location for thousands of current Navy Federal members.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be serving the Fort Bragg community,” said Sara Petty, branch manager. “Navy Federal now has three branches in the greater Fayetteville community and we are excited about the warm welcome we’ve received, despite the cold weather we’ve experienced on our first day here!”

As part of the grand opening celebration, Navy Federal welcomed representatives from the group Blue Star Families, which was founded by several military spouses with the goal of making a difference in the lives of military families.

“Our team here and around the globe really have a heart for serving our members and the communities we call home,” Petty said. “And I’m thankful for the outpouring of support we’ve already received from our new neighbors here in Harnett County and those serving Fort Bragg.”

With the new branch in Spout Springs, Navy Federal now operates 295 branches located around the world with most located on or near U.S. military installations.
