TITLE: BAR HARBOR BANK & TRUST GRAND RE-OPENING CELEBRATION IN ROCKLAND – OCTOBER 18
Rockland, Maine– Bar Harbor Bank & Trust is celebrating the Grand Re-Opening of their newly renovated branch at 245 Camden Street in Rockland on Friday, October 18. Join us for fun and festivities all day, with lunch served from 11:00 to 1:00.
“In just four months the Rockland branch of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust underwent a remarkable transformation to an updated and visually appealing building on Route 1 in Rockland,” said Greg Jones, Branch Relationship Manager. “We are so grateful to our customers who endured this process with us. It is business as usual in the newly renovated building that re-opened on Monday, September 30.”
Renovations of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust’s Rockland branch included an extensive facelift, both inside and out. The floor plan was adjusted, decreasing the size of the customer service counter and improving customer access to the safety deposit box area, in addition to security and privacy upgrades. All central systems were upgraded, including HVAC, electrical, security and lighting. The interior was not only reconfigured but also redecorated, making it much brighter and up-to-date. The exterior design of the building was dramatically changed, and new doors and windows were installed to improve energy efficiency. As icing on the cake, the parking lot was re-paved as the project concluded.
“Please join us for our Grand Re-Opening celebration on October 18. I look forward to seeing you there,” said Greg Jones, Branch Relationship Manager, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust, Rockland.
