TORONTO, Feb. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - On Wednesday February 13, 2013, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., Scotiabank will host the official grand opening of its innovative and redesigned Yorkdale branch in the Yorkdale Shopping Centre at 3401 Dufferin Street in Toronto with special guests Jonathan and Drew Scott of The Property Brothers, and a draw for a $5000 prize for home renovations.  This new branch will incorporate an open design with the latest technology to make banking more interactive and user friendly.

"We're excited to introduce our new branch design to our local customers," said John Doig, Senior Vice President of Toronto Region, Scotiabank.  "The moment you walk into this branch you'll notice the change. It feels different, with a new open concept design and a heightened emphasis on interactive banking. People are banking differently and our new bank reflects that, and these new ways of banking are underpinned by the same great advice and solutions that our customers have come to expect."

In addition to checking out the new branch design and use of the latest technology, Torontonians attending the branch opening can also meet Jonathan and Drew Scott of The Property Brothers, get their autograph and have a photo taken with them.
