South Burlington, VT ̶ Molly Dillon, Senior Vice President of Merchants Bank and President of Merchants Trust Company, joined over 100 community members and bank staff at the official ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration at the new location on the corner of Williston Road and Hinesburg Road.
Champ, the Lake Monsters’ mascot, made a guest appearance to greet customers while bank staff provided guided tours and shared information about the new branch design and awarded prizes from local businesses. As part of the bank’s ongoing community commitment, a donation was presented to COTS.
Beginning at the Grand Opening and continuing each week until April 10, winners will be selected weekly and receive exciting prizes from local businesses–including great items from Cheese Traders, Vermont Lake Monsters, Executive Car Care, Rags & Riches and Superb Cupcake. This culminates on April 10th, with one lucky winner getting a $500.00 Travel Certificate from Milne Travel.
“This grand opening and move to such a high profile and convenient location reflects our community and customer commitment while improving access to new banking technology,” Dillon said.
