On Jan. 27 Columbia Bank celebrated the opening of its newest branch in Bergen County.
Lyndhurst Mayor Robert Giangeruso and Columbia President and Chief Executive Officer Thomas Kemly participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the location at 401 Valley Brook Ave.
“We look forward to bringing full-service community banking to Lyndhurst and its surrounding communities,” Kemly said in a prepared statement. “Columbia prides itself on offering an impressive selection of convenient, value-added banking services…from checking and savings accounts … to commercial and SBA loans, lines of credit and business banking services designed to help any business grow.”
According to Columbia, the Lyndhurst office was designed to promote an enhanced experience for customers, featuring a video message screen, digital rate display and an “Intelligent ATM.”
To celebrate the opening, the bank said it is offering specials including promotional CDs, high yield checking accounts and a home equity line of credit. During the grand opening period, for each new account opened that meets certain deposit requirements Columbia will also donate $10 to the Lyndhurst Fire Department, the Lyndhurst Police Emergency Squad or the Women’s Club of Lyndhurst to benefit the Lyndhurst Food Pantry. The groups will also receive bonuses of $2,500, $1,000 or $500 at the conclusion of the promotion, depending on final vote totals.
