ELIZABETH – Investors Bank will mark the grand opening of its new branch at 51 South Broad Street in Elizabeth by hosting a day-long celebration on Friday, Oct. 21. The event is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and anyone can attend who lives or works in New Jersey’s fourth largest city or shops and visits there. People who stop by the branch can meet the Investors’ team, open an account, enjoy refreshments, get giveaway items, and enter a sweepstakes drawing for an iPad.
The new Elizabeth location is the first branch Investors has opened since recently changing its name from Investors Savings Bank. “Our new name reflects our broader range of personal and commercial banking services, capabilities, and expertise,” said Investors Bank President and CEO Kevin Cummings. “And, our symbol, called ‘The Weave’, represents the many connections we have in Elizabeth and other communities, and it is linked to our brand promise of providing ‘Banking in Your Best Interest’.”
One way Investors is meeting the banking needs of Elizabeth’s diverse community is by placing its branch in the City’s busy and thriving midtown area. Located near Union County’s offices and courts, City Hall, and the Trinitas Regional Medical Center, the branch was designed to help busy men and women complete their personal and business banking quickly. First, the branch has free, off-street parking and a fast-service, drive-up banking window that is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The branch also has 24-hour ATM banking, while the hours for lobby banking are Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Friday from 8:30 to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
During the grand opening, Cummings, city officials and many special guests will participate in the ribbon cutting ceremonies at 10 a.m. At the event, customers and guests can enter a sweepstakes drawing to win one of three iPads. Also, the bank is offering incentives to individuals or business owners who open deposit accounts or apply for loans.
By opening a new account during Investors’ Grand Opening, people or companies will also assist the YWCA of Eastern Union County. The local YWCA has been empowering women to achieve their potential for 91 years, and since 1978 the organization has been the lead provider of services to victims of domestic violence in Union County. And, each time a new account is opened at the Elizabeth branch between Oct. 21 and 24, Investors will donate $25 to the YWCA.
Announcing the alliance with the YWCA, Cummings said, “Our customer-focused staff is dedicated to serving each person who banks with us. At the same time, we will reach out to and assist local community organizations that are helping children, adults, and the elderly.”
YWCA Executive Director Jan Lilien and her staff plan to attend the grand opening and provide information about their programs and services for women in Union County. Lilien said, “We know that Investors is dedicated to making a positive difference in Elizabeth. One of our board members is Investors’ Senior Vice President and Regional Manager Mary Rose Genovese, who has helped our organization by providing leadership, vision, and guidance.”
