CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2012) - BMO Bank of Montreal invites customers and members of the community to celebrate the grand opening of its new full-service branch in the Aspen Landing Shopping Centre in southwest Calgary at 350 Aspen Glen Landings SW on Sunday, February 26th.

In order to meet the needs of its growing customer base, the new open-concept branch is designed to create a welcoming, comfortable financial services experience and is outfitted with the latest banking conveniences, including:

  • A free coin counter - a simple-to-use kiosk which counts your loose change;
  • Services provided in four languages;
  • Access to commercial account and deposit services;
  • Two ATMs; and
  • Barrier-free access.

"We encourage residents and local business owners to drop by to see our new branch," said Kim Shllaku, Aspen Landing Branch Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal. "The new branch's extended hours make it easier for our customers and other members of the community to come in and speak with our team about their financial needs."

BMO's recent announcement that it is boosting credit available to businesses by $10 billion over the next three years will provide important benefits to companies located in Alberta, according to Robert Hayes, Senior Vice-President, Prairies, BMO Bank of Montreal.

"We've been seeing an impressive amount of strategic investment by Alberta businesses," said Mr. Hayes. "The availability of more credit will help even more Alberta companies to grow their operations and open up new markets. Our local bankers are also armed with limits to make the lending decisions right here in Alberta."

"Further growth in business investment outlays will continue to support the Alberta economy," said Robert Kavcic, Economist, BMO Capital Markets. "With growth likely to be tops among all provinces in 2012, the addition of supportive financial conditions will help ensure continued momentum."

In celebration of the new branch opening, customers who make an appointment for a complimentary personal financial review at the new branch before February 29th, 2012 will have a chance to win an Apple iPad.

BMO's new Aspen Landing branch hours of operation are:
