School Green Earth program
CALGARY, Dec. 15, 2012 /CNW/ - TD Canada Trust celebrated today, the
official grand opening of its new state-of-the-art branch in the SW
suburb of Calgary. Located at Unit 620 - 19369 Sheriff King Street, SW,
Calgary, Alberta, the new branch is full-service and open seven days a
week to serve the needs of the growing community.
"We've opened several new branches in Calgary and area this year and we
continue to expand our offerings to serve customers at a time and place
that works for them," said Joe Culos, Vice President Distribution
Support, Prairie Region, TD Canada Trust. "The new branch in Silverado
is located conveniently to serve customers in Calgary's south end and
nearby rural communities."
Features of the new branch include:
An open concept design that helps TD serve customers better by moving financial specialists
from behind desks and right into the presence of customers.
A community wall shares a pictorial story about the local area. The current display
features projects funded by the TD Friends of the Environment
Foundation and includes space for community groups to post flyers about
A Kids' Area equipped with books for waiting children.
Digital Displays mounted throughout the branch to provide customers with current
information about TD products and services.
A Customer Lounge with a 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.
In addition to the grand opening festivities and ribbon-cutting
ceremony, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation made a $5,000
donation to the Centennial High School Green Earth program. The Green
Earth program couples the academic study of Biology and Chemistry with
the hands-on experiential study of wildlife and environmental
stewardship. It offers students the opportunity to challenge themselves
physically and academically, gain skills in personal development,
leadership, outdoor travel, team work and much more, while learning how
to think innovatively about global and local issues.
