Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Brock Insurance Agency announced it will be opening an office in the One North Shore building on Manufacturers Road later this summer.

The new 1,900-square foot office next to Pure Barre will offer all the services of BIA with commercial insurance, personal home/auto coverage, bonds and employee benefits. Other commercial tenants in One North Shore include Keller Williams Realty, Kaleidoscope Salon, Inc., Chat O’ Brasserie, and K Boutique.

“We are very excited to be opening an office downtown and to continue to be a part of the city of Chattanooga as it grows. BIA has grown consistently over the years and with the addition of new personnel, downtown Chattanooga was a natural location for us to settle on” said Mark Brock, president of Brock Insurance Agency.

Brock Insurance Agency operates at 823 Chickamauga Ave., Rossville, and has been serving the needs of businesses and individuals of Tennessee, Georgia and all across the Southeast for over 50 years. Mr. Brock said, “With the ever-changing insurance market, we want to be easily accessible to our clients for anything from drop-in questions to full policy reviews.
