    Sunday has become the new Saturday as clients welcome the opportunity to
    visit CIBC branches on Sundays and obtain financial planning and advice
    

    TORONTO, Sept. 15 /CNW/ - CIBC (CM: TSX;NYSE) will be expanding Sunday
banking hours to additional locations across the country over the next year,
offering clients even more flexibility, access and choice. With the addition
of 33 new Sunday hours branches, CIBC will be open on Sundays at 45 branches
across the country.
    "The response from clients to Sunday hours in our branches has been
overwhelmingly positive," said Sonia Baxendale, CIBC Senior Executive Vice
President, Retail Markets at today's CIBC Investor Day Forum in Toronto.
"Sunday has become the new Saturday and our clients tell us they appreciate
being able to bank according to their schedules, so offering Sunday banking
hours at 45 branches will give them even more flexibility and choice in how
they bank with us."
    Beginning this fall, select urban locations will open their doors on
Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. The exact locations of these additional branches
will be announced later. Branches will be selected based on their location
relative to busy urban shopping areas. Currently CIBC offers Sunday branch
banking hours at six branches in the Vancouver Lower Mainland, and six
branches in the GTA.
    Offering Sunday hours and adding Saturday hours at other branches across
the country is one more way CIBC is investing in its clients. In the past
year, CIBC has also announced 47 new branch locations as part of a strategic
plan to build, relocate and expand over 70 new branches across the country by
2011.
