BMO Opens New Branch in Southwest Calgary-Open Seven Days a Week

- New BMO branch in the Aspen Landing Shopping Centre represents a $1.1 million investment into the community

- Offers customers extended banking hours, including Sundays

- 'Making Money Make Sense' in four languages

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 12, 2011) - BMO Bank of Montreal today announced the opening of a new full-service banking branch in Aspen Landing Shopping Centre in southwest Calgary, at 350 Aspen Glen Landings SW.

The new open-concept branch, fuelled by clean energy from Bullfrog Power, offers customers extended banking hours seven days a week and is designed to provide a great banking experience through a variety of financial services and 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 are looking forward to opening our doors in this popular and vibrant shopping neighbourhood, to provide service for the communities of Aspen Woods, Christie Park, Strathcona Park and Wentworth," said Kim Shllaku, Branch Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal. "The new branch's extended hours will make it easier for our customers and other members of the community to come in and speak with our team about their financial needs."

"Alberta's economy is significantly outperforming the national average in 2011, as high oil prices are fuelling activity in the energy sector, which in turn is driving strong labour market performance," said Robert Kavcic, Economist, BMO Capital Markets. "Furthermore, private-sector employment was up a massive 8.8 per cent year over year in November, outpacing even the growth seen at the height of the pre-recession commodity boom."

In celebration of the new branch opening, customers who make an appointment for a complimentary personal financial review at the new branch between December 12th, 2011 and February 29th, 2012 will have a chance to win an Apple iPad.

In addition, the new branch is lending a hand to young customers wishing to open their first account by matching each child's first deposit of $25 between December 12th, 2011 and January 30th, 2012.

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

  • 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday to Wednesday;
  • 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Thursday and Friday;
  • 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday; and
  • 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Sunday.

The grand opening celebration will take place on February 26, 2012.
