Life is getting a little more convenient for BMO Bank of Montreal clients in Airdrie with the bank opening a new branch Feb. 3, located in Kingsview Market.
The new full-service branch located at 115-2100 Market Street SE, offers customers extended banking hours and is open seven days a week.
“The city of Airdrie’s population has more than doubled over the last decade to nearly 50,000, making Airdrie one of the fastest growing cities in Canada,” said Branch Manager Hassan Sbeiti. “Opening our second full-service branch allows us to continue to provide financial products and services to residents of this rapidly growing city.”
The new branch features a coin counter, which counts loose change for you, two ATMs, and access to commercial accounts and deposit services – including a 24-hour depository for after-hours use by small business customers.
The branch is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m Monday through Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday and Fridays, and from, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
The new branch, which BMO invested $1 million in, is Airdrie’s second full-service Bank of Montreal with the first location located at 750 Main Street.
“The $1-million investment and expanded team and hours of banking are signs of the positive outlook for the city’s future growth,” wrote Laurie Grant, senior manager for BMO Media and Public Relations, in an email to Airdrie City View.
A grand opening celebration will take place at the new branch on March 15, but customers who open a new Primary Chequing Account at the branch before March 31, will receive $100. For more information, visit the new Kingsview Market location.
The Bank of Montreal was established in 1817 and has grown to become a highly-diversified financial group known as the BMO Financial Group with $537 billion in total assets and more than 45,000 employees.
