Advance Financial celebrated the grand opening of their newest location in Jackson, Tenn. with a $1,000 donation to the Jackson Boys and Girls Club.

Leading fintech company Advance Financial continued its expansion this month with the opening of two new stores, one in Jackson, Tenn., located at 2180 South Highland Avenue and a new store in Union City, Tenn., at 1704 W. Reelfoot Avenue. Advance Financial is on track to expand its market presence to 100 storefronts in Tennessee by the end of 2018, plus a digital footprint spanning 20 states in the next year.

The new locations are open for business 24 hours, seven days a week, offering a range of financial services that include prepaid cards, electronic wire services to anywhere in the world, check cashing, free bill-payment services and free money orders. Also included is the company’s loan product (called a FLEX Loan) that is a flexible line of credit that offers customers the freedom of access to funds on their schedule with no late penalties.

Advance Financial is one of only a handful of companies in its industry that serves customers around the clock.

To mark the occasion of opening up the store in Jackson, the Advance Financial Foundation donated $1,000 to Boys & Girls Club of Jackson.

“As Advance Financial continues to grow, we make it a point to give back to the communities we serve,” said Shantrelle Johnson, vice president of corporate citizenship for Advance Financial. “Through the Advance Financial Foundation, we are honored to provide extra support to local organizations that share our mission to provide crucial services to the people who need it most.”

“We are thrilled that Advance Financial continues to grow not only with our brick-and-mortar locations, but with our innovative digital services,” said Tina Hodges, the company’s chief executive and chief experience officer. “Now more Tennessee residents than ever before have access to credit that could change their financial futures for the better.”
