Bar Harbor Bank & Trust Invests in Ellsworth Facilities
We have over 90 employees in our three Ellsworth locations which include the branch, a Financial Services and Business Banking Center at 135 High Street, and an Operations Center on Avery Lane. We are excited about upcoming plans to improve all of our Ellsworth facilities for our employees, our customers, and our community.
In August, we opened for business at the newly renovated branch location in the Ellsworth Shopping Center next to Reny's. Our location at 137 High Street, including the drive-up and ATM, was closed for renovations which are scheduled to begin in 2011. Our full-service Ellsworth Shopping Center location has a four-person teller line, two customer service offices, a safe deposit box vault, two drive-thru lanes, plus a third lane housing a free-standing drive-up ATM. Banking hours and services have remained the same, including Saturday hours in the lobby and at the drive-up.
"We were very fortunate to secure the space at the Ellsworth Shopping Center, which is in such close proximity to our present site. It will be an easy transition for customers who are accustomed to banking with us at 137 High Street.," said Stephen Leackfeldt, SVP of Retail Banking & Consumer Lending at Bar Harbor Bank & Trust.
"We understand the strategic importance of Ellsworth, as it is a vital and growing hub of our branch network. Our customers from Deer Isle to Lubec and all points between travel to or through this City, so investing in our infrastructure here is a priority. The relocation of the branch to the Shopping Center space is the first phase in a multi-phase renovation and reconfiguration plan for all of our Ellsworth locations. Details will be announced soon, but the primary goal of the designs will be to provide fresh new facilities with unequalled customer convenience and access," said Joseph Murphy, President and CEO of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust.
We will post further information at this site as plans progress.
