After four years in San Juan Capistrano’s Marbella Plaza, Newport Beach-based Independence Bank is relocating its South County branch to the Plaza Del Rio off Camino Capistrano, just a few miles down the road.

The current location will be open for business until 1 p.m. on Friday and will reopen at its new branch on March 21.

The move will give customers improved access to the 5 freeway; a larger, traditional open design; and all the latest in technology, including a lobby computer designed to demonstrate the bank’s online system.

Founded in 2004, Independence Bank provides big-bank services with an emphasis on building strong community relationships. In 2008, the company received the Business of the Year award from the San Juan Capistrano Chamber of Commerce.

“Independence Bank is truly a main street bank, meaning that our services and expertise reflect the business and residents in the communities we serve,” said C. Lawrence Thomas, co-founder and first vice president.
