Wells Fargo has opened a new community banking store at 375 White Plains Road in Eastchester, the first new retail location in Westchester County since 2009.
The Eastchester store employs 14 bankers and has an online banking station. Additionally, the branch features a mural depicting Eastchester’s history, produced in conjunction with the local historical society. And the building that houses the new branch was constructed to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver standards.
The new store brings the total of Wells Fargo retail banking stores in Westchester County to 36, with locations in Scarsdale, Tuckahoe, White Plains, Port Chester, Rye, Rye Brook and Larchmont among others.
“Not having a store in Eastchester was a gap in our distribution network, considering the town’s ideal location in the heart of Westchester County,” said Eleanor Willets, Wells Fargo area president for Metro New York, in a statement. “This new store enables us to better assist local residents and businesses with products and services which will help them to succeed financially.”
