Exchange Bank East Petaluma Branch Grand Opening

Santa Rosa, CA – (August 18, 2017) - Exchange Bank (OTC:EXSR) celebrated the grand opening of its new Petaluma East branch with a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception on Thursday, August 17, 2017. The event was co-hosted by the Petaluma Chamber of Commerce and held at the new location at 453 N. McDowell Blvd., Suite 10, Petaluma, CA 94954.


In attendance at the event were Exchange Bank and Petaluma Chamber customers, members and guests. The new branch opened its doors on Monday, June 19, 2017 and replaces a branch previously located at 701 Sonoma Mountain Parkway in Petaluma.


The new branch is designed to make customers feel welcome the moment they walk in. The design elements reflect the natural colors and textures found in the community and provide an open feeling that customers have described as “beautiful, open and spacious.” The traditional branch design has been replaced by an environment that allows customers to move at their own pace between technology-based transactions and personal service.


“Our vision was to create a warm, welcoming space that reflects the spirit of the community, where our customers feel comfortable transacting business and receiving financial advice,” said Ann Hudson, Senior Vice President, Retail Banking.


The new branch includes a lounge-like area with “smart” screens featuring financial education and community events, a coffee bar, free Wi-Fi, digital technology, and a kids zone to keep little ones busy while parents do their banking. Customers interact with banking specialists at “pods” equipped with cash recyclers for quick service. Glass door offices offer privacy for consultation and in-depth interactions.


“We want to continue to evolve the Bank to meet the needs of our customers—with innovative spaces, technology and knowledgeable staff members, said Ann.”


Business hours at the new location remain unchanged (Monday-Thursday 9am-5pm, Friday 9am-6pm) with the addition of Saturday hours from 9am-1pm, giving customers one more day to do their banking.


The staff at our new branch look forward to greeting customers and visitors. Edie Cheda, Vice President/Branch Manager and a Petaluma native, is available to answer questions.

Edie can be contacted at (707) 766-1544.
