Merchants Bank Celebrates New Barre Branch Opening on November 29, 2012

Food, Giveaways and Raffle Prizes Are Front and Center

South Burlington, VT Molly Dillon, Senior Vice President of Merchants Bank and President of Merchants Trust Company, announced that Merchants Bank will officially be celebrating the opening of its new Barre branch on North Main Street in the Rite Aid Shopping Plaza on Thursday, November 29 from 11 am to 3 pm.  Merchants Bank invites all community members to come and tour the new branch office and take part in the festivities–with raffles and giveaways happening all afternoon. A formal ribbon cutting event will take place at 12:45 pm.

Beginning at the Grand Opening and continuing each week until the Christmas holiday, a raffle will be held at the branch. The raffle prizes are all from local businesses–with everything from Lenny’s and Bob’s Camera to Wobby’s Jewelers and Nelson Hardware.
The culmination is a $500 Grand Prize Travel Package from Milne Travel, happening right before Christmas. Merchants Bank reminds the community that you need to enter to win, so please stop by the new branch and fill out an entry form.

“This Grand Opening and move to a new branch reflects our commitment to building strong relationships with customers while improving access to new banking technology,” Dillon said. “We encourage folks to stop by our Grand Opening and say hello and enter to win some terrific prizes.”

A few highlights of the new branch office include:

• Two remote capture deposit ATMs – one in the lobby and one at the drive-up – allowing customers to deposit checks and cash without having to use deposit slips or envelopes. Once customers insert a check or cash, the machine displays an image of the check or cash, adds it up and asks the customer to confirm the amount of the deposit, providing necessary security and control. 

• Branch staff will be available to help with more complicated or in-depth transactions and solve other problems that arise. Other tools and technology will be incorporated into the design to increase transaction efficiency, processing speed and overall quality.
