TAUNTON â€“ Bristol County Savings Bank cut the ribbon at new branches in Massachusetts on April 17, with its first full-service banking office in Fall River and its second and third branches in New Bedford, according to a press release from the bank.
â€śAt a time when big banks often dominate the industry, it is a great thing when a neighborhood bank competes successfully and earns loyal customers by treating them fairly and understanding their needs,â€ť said New Bedford Mayor Jonathan Mitchell said at the opening of the branch on Acushnet Avenue.
â€śThe bankâ€™s long and successful history of effectively serving businesses and individuals in southeastern Massachusetts helped make the transition for our former Admirals customers a smooth one,â€ť said the bankâ€™s President and CEO Patrick Murray.
As part of the ribbon-cutting at the Fall River branch, the Bristol County Savings Charitable Foundation made a $250,000 grant to the YMCA Southcoast to help fund the Fall River YMCA Capital Project.
