SaviBank has broken ground for a new branch on Midway Boulevard in Oak Harbor.
The site is located across the street from SaviBank’s current temporary branch.
P & L General Contrac-tors, Inc. will be managing the construction of the new branch and completion is scheduled for spring 2019.
“Building this new branch is another demonstration of our ongoing commitment to provide highly personalized local banking services to the residents and businesses of Oak Harbor and Whidbey Island,” SaviBank Chairman and CEO Mike Cann said in a press release.
When completed, the new building will have approximately 5,300 square feet of space.
The new branch will include a full-service bank branch, as well as drive-through banking and ATM facilities. The building will also house some administrative offices of the bank.
“This is what we envisioned almost three years ago when SaviBank committed to bring locally-based community banking back to Whidbey Island,” President Andy Hunter said.
“We’re looking forward to serving our customers in this new branch.”
Local SaviBank branch staff members moving to the new office include long-time community bankers Todd Krantz, Vice President and Branch Manager, Shelly Etherington, Rose Rip, Cheryle Nordstrand, Yvonne Eckles and Steve Crandall.
