CIBC to offer Saturday banking at 20 more branches across Southern Ontario

Greater flexibility for CIBC clients with Saturday hours at 77 branches
    in the regionTORONTO, June 15 /CNW/ - CIBC today announced the introduction of
full-service banking on Saturdays at 20 additional Southern Ontario branches
to provide clients greater flexibility, access and choice. The majority of
these branches will begin offering extra hours as of Saturday, June 20.
    Today's announcement means CIBC clients will be able to bank at least six
days a week at 77 CIBC branches located in some of Southern Ontario's busiest
shopping areas.
    "We're continuing to invest in extending our hours of business in
locations where we know our clients live, work and shop to give them more
opportunities to talk to a CIBC financial advisor," said Larry Tomei, CIBC's
Senior Vice-President of Retail Markets for Central Ontario. "Banking Monday
to Friday just doesn't work for everyone. Adding full-service Saturday hours
in these busy urban areas gives our clients greater flexibility to bank and
get advice when it suits their schedule."
    "CIBC's investment in expanding hours is also creating job opportunities,
as we've added great people to our team in these communities," added Tomei.
