Wenatchee Business Journal
Peoples Bank announced in November that it will consolidate its East Wenatchee branch at Safeway Foods with its Wenatchee Financial Center branch. Combined branch operations will be placed at the Wenatchee Financial Center, located at 901 N. Mission Street. This full-service branch offers personal and business banking services, real estate and commercial loan centers, as well as safe deposit boxes. All East Wenatchee branch staff were offered the opportunity to transfer to the Wenatchee Financial Center and retain employment with Peoples Bank. Branch consolidation will be completed on March 1, 2018.
“After careful consideration, we determined that the size and accessibility of our East Wenatchee Office, located within the Safeway Store, was no longer meeting our branch standards for delivering the best full relationship banking customer experience,” said Mark Swanson, Peoples Bank Regional Retail Banking Manager. “We apologize in advance to our customers for any inconvenience that may result from this change.” Read more...
