The new KeyBank is hosting an open house tomorrow, Friday, May 13 from 9am to 5pm. While they won’t officially be open for business, the staff will be on hand to meet and greet neighbors and merchants, and they’ll provide coffee from Fuel, donuts from Mighty-O in the morning, and Trophy Cupcakes in the afternoon. The branch will begin regular operation, including teller service on Monday, May 16, from 9am to 5pm and will again provide coffee and goodies from Fuel, Mighty-O Donuts, and Trophy Cupcakes.
Located at 1700 N. 45th St., you can’t miss the newly-renovated building with its distinctive red awnings over each window and…wait a second…what’s that in front? GRASS! Key will have a walk-up ATM with a night drop for businesses, and 10 free parking spaces. Once you look inside the 3,172 square foot space, you’ll find some large framed photos of the Wallingford Center, the tunnel entrance at Meridian Park, and QFC’s Wallingford sign shot by Seattle photographer Scott Manthey of Image Arts Photography.
Branch staff are already a part of the community, with two (soon to be three) of the seven employees Wallingford residents. The branch will also participate in several neighborhood events including the monthly Wallingford Art Walk, and the Wallingford Kiddie Parade. Steve Franco-Ross, one of Key’s relationship managers will also be volunteering with the Wallingford Community Senior Center as well as FamilyWorks, where the Key branch will also be making a donation.
Stop by and say “howdy” to Todd Crosby, the branch manager. The staff is seasoned and those who I’ve met so far are very friendly and personable. KeyBank’s regular business hours will be 9am to 5pm Monday through Thursday; 9am to 6pm on Fridays; and 10am to 1:30pm on Saturdays. Stay tuned for more details on KeyBank’s Gala Grand Opening on Saturday, June 18 from 11am to 1pm.
