Citizens Bank will hold a grand opening on Friday, Mar. 17, to celebrate its new branch inside the Acme Fresh Market located at 3875 Massillon Rd in Green.
This is the ninth Acme branch for Citizens. The celebration will occur from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and will feature activities for children and adults as well as a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“Our customers continually praise the convenience and excellent level of service they receive at our supermarket branches,” said Joe DiRocco, president of Citizens Bank in Ohio. “We are excited about the new branch in Green and we invite the community to celebrate with us on March 17.”
In addition to the ribbon cutting ceremony at 10 a.m., Citizens Bank customers and the general public are invited to attend the celebration, which includes a balloon artist from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., refreshments, and $5 gift cards to Acme for using the ATM or having a colleague demonstrate the Citizens mobile app.
Citizens Bank will also make a donation to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank for Harvest for Hunger. In December, Citizens donated to the Foodbank as part of the bank’s Carving Out Hunger program. In 2016, the bank contributed more than $100,000 to food banks across Ohio.
The new supermarket branch is designed to provide a blend of personal service and user-friendly technology, the bank said. The branch provides the convenience of full-service banking seven days a week, including a private office for the Citizens Checkup program, which gives customers the chance to sit with a banker and discuss their financial needs. This new branch will also feature an enhanced ATM so customers can deposit checks and cash without needing envelopes and deposit slips.
"Acme Fresh Market is proud to bring a world class banking experience to our customers,” said Jim Trout, president of Acme Fresh Market. “We are committed to providing our customers with a great experience in our stores - and Citizens Bank is a wonderful enhancement. Convenient location, friendly people - Citizens Bank is another reason to shop at your locally owned Acme Fresh Market."
The branch is open Monday to Friday from 10:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
