Easton, MA (PressExposure) February 17, 2011 -- Drive down Route 138 in Easton and you'll notice that Bank of Easton's Main Office at 275 Washington Street has been undergoing some changes. The 120 year-old community bank puts its customers first. In fact when customers said they'd like a little more room to do their banking-for a more private, personal experience, Bank management took note.
The renovation is an upgrade to the existing building, a conservative approach to updating and remodeling without the expense and extravagance that can sometimes accompany building renovations. Tom Caron, President of the Bank of Easton said "The old layout was a bit challenging for customers and staff alike. We've made some great changes with the renovations, all of which will create a better banking environment overall. I think customers will be very pleased with the new layout."
The design of the renovation developed by BKA Architects, Inc. of Brockton focused on aligning the bank's exterior and interior brand elements while enhancing the customer experience and the bank processes executed within the facility. Brophy & Philips of Brockton was responsible for the construction.
Members of Bank of Easton's Board of Directors, Ken Fernandes and Wayne Southworth, are thrilled with the progress that Bank of Easton is making. Fernandes said "The key to the renovations are to instill an added confidence in this community. Bank of Easton is strong; we are here, and we're not going anywhere." Southworth added "I'm extremely proud of Bank of Easton and its accomplishments. I've heard many comments from folks around town and they are as excited as we are about the great improvements to Bank of Easton."
The renovations are expected to be finished by the end of winter, and in the spring the Bank will host a week long open house celebration, inviting customers to come check out the new look and participate in various activities and contests.
In the meantime the Main Office is open for business during regular hours, and although customers may encounter a carpenter or two during their transaction, the staff is working hard to successfully conduct business as usual.
