Bank of Ann Arbor is pleased to announce the opening of its downtown Saline, Michigan office, its seventh banking center. Longtime Saline resident, Walt Byers has been named Saline District President. Shelley Rankin, an active community supporter, has been selected as Branch Manager.
The Saline Chamber of Commerce will conduct an official ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 11:30am. The public is welcome to attend.
Bank of Ann Arbor completely gutted and remodeled a former Bank of America building at 179 E. Michigan Avenue, which was vacated when they moved to the outskirts of Saline. The new office features sit-down teller stations and a cybercafé with complementary coffee from Saline’s Drowsy Parrot. The hours are Monday through Thursday, 9:00am to 5:00pm, Friday 9:00am to 6:00pm and Saturday 9:00am to Noon. The phone number is 734-470-5001.
“We are excited to bring the personal service that Bank of Ann Arbor is known for to businesses and residents of Saline,” said Timothy Marshall, President and CEO, Bank of Ann Arbor. “The design of this banking center is similar to our Ellsworth and Traver Village offices because it reflects the warmth and professionalism of the service our clients will receive from Shelley and her team. The traditional branch with teller cages and dark paneling has been replaced with a light, open environment that invites people to linger, ask questions and learn grow Saline and the surrounding areas."
