Needham, MA (PRWEB) April 2, 2007
Needham Bank, which received regulatory approval on March 22, 2007 to merge The Needham Cooperative Bank and Dedham Co-operative Bank, has announced plans for a grand opening celebration on Saturday, April 14, 2007 at its new Dedham Square location at 402 Washington Street.
The banks, which will become one institution on April 2, 2007, will kick off the merger celebration with a "Welcome Week" from April 9-13. During this week, bank customers and the public are invited to visit any of the five Needham Bank locations in Needham, Dedham Square, Medfield, Westwood and Wellesley. Coffee and donuts will be served each day between 8am to 10am, and customer service representatives and bank executives will be on hand to answer any questions people may have regarding the bank and its services.
The week will culminate in the grand opening celebration on April 14 from 9am-12noon at the Dedham Square location. The celebration will be a family affair and the public is urged to attend. The festivities will kick off at 9am with a ribbon cutting ceremony and will include complimentary refreshments, prize giveaways each hour on the hour, and electronic fingerprinting for kids. Doc Shredding Corp. will be on hand to shred your old documents to help protect you from identity theft. Dedham Bike will offer free bike safety inspections. The Dedham Police Department will offer free child safety seat inspections, and the Dedham Fire Department will have their trucks in front of the bank for kids to tour.
"This is a very exciting time for Needham Bank," said bank president Jack McGeorge. "Community banking has been our primary focus since we were founded in 1892, so it's only fitting that we celebrate this occasion with the entire community. We are especially looking forward to welcoming the Dedham customers into our family and serving them for many years to come."
In addition to the festivities that day, the bank will be open for business as usual. The new branch's regular business hours are Monday through Thursday 7am-3pm, Friday 7am-5:30pm, and Saturday 8am-12noon.
