EDISON – Groundbreaking for Investors Savings Bank’s second branch in Edison marks an important step in the economic revitalization of the community’s historic Clara Barton District.
Located at the corner of Seventh Street and Amboy Avenue, construction on the 3,000 square-foot branch will begin immediately with an opening targeted for the middle of 2009. The new, one-story facility will complement the classic design of this historic district’s nearby homes and businesses. The branch will have three drive-up lanes, including two teller stations and a 24-hour ATM as well as a secure night depository for business customers.
“We are very impressed by Investors Savings Bank’s focus on serving the people, families and businesses of Edison,” said Mayor Jun Choi, who took part in the groundbreaking ceremony. “Investors’ local managers and senior executives are investing their resources and sharing their expertise to help us create a vibrant downtown shopping area.”
Investors Savings Bank has served Edison for many years from its current branch on 1655 Oak Tree Road in the Pathmark Shopping Center. The branch is managed by Jacqueline Hancock-Pena, an experienced banker who is the past Chair of the Edison Chamber of Commerce and Board member of the Middlesex County College Foundation. As the third largest community bank headquartered in the Garden State, Investors has the financial strength to make a difference in the communities it serves by supporting local non-profit organizations, schools and charitable organizations. The Investors Savings Bank Charitable Foundation has dispensed more than $2.7 million in grants to the arts, education, youth development, affordable housing, and health and human services.
“We share and actively support the vision that the neighborhood along Amboy Avenue will become one of Edison’s thriving downtown areas,” said Investors Savings Bank’s Chief Operating Officer Domenick Cama. “Our long term success is linked to our commitment to serve the community in many ways for years to come.”
