SASKATOON, SK, Oct. 5, 2013 /CNW/ - TD Canada Trust celebrates today the grand opening of a new, full-service branch in Saskatoon, SK located at 121 Betts Avenue. In recognition of the event, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation made a $5,000 donation to Confederation Park Community School outdoor community garden and outdoor classroom projects.

"We're pleased to be able to serve the banking needs of customers whenever and wherever they want to bank with us," said Joe Culos, Vice President Distribution Support, TD Canada Trust, Prairie Region. "This new branch means another convenient location where we can welcome our Saskatoon customers and provide them with exceptional service, great advice and comfortable banking."

Features of the new branch include:

  • An open concept design that helps TD serve customers better by moving financial specialists out from behind desks and in front of customers.
  • Digital displays mounted throughout the branch to provide customers with current information about TD products and services.
  • A customer lounge with coffee station lets customers wait in comfort if they arrive early for an appointment or are waiting for their friends or family to complete their banking.
  • An automatic coin counter available to customers to bring unwrapped mixed coins to sort and exchange for bills or to deposit into their account.
  • A community wall shares a pictorial story about the area.  The current display features projects funded by the local chapter of the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation and includes space for community groups to post flyers about upcoming events.

As part of TD Canada Trust's extended hours the branch is open Monday through Wednesday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm; Thursday and Friday from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm; Saturday from  8:00 am to 4:00 pm; and Sunday from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The new branch is wheelchair accessible and features a full-service Green Machine ATM and drive-through ATM available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The $5,000 donation to Confederation Park Community School outdoor garden and outdoor classroom project is part of TD's strong commitment to the environment and the community. Funds will be used to maintain the gardens and the purchase of seeds, plants and equipment.
