STONY PLAIN, AB, April 26, 2014 /CNW/ - TD Canada Trust celebrated
today, the official grand opening of its new state-of-the-art branch in
the community of Stony Plain. Located at 4404 48th Street, the new branch is full-service and is open seven days a week to
serve the growing community's banking needs. In recognition of the
event, the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation made a $5,000
donation to Little Green Thumbs.
"After serving the community at our temporary location for several
months, we're thrilled to invite customers to visit us at our new
convenient, permanent location," said Monique Bateman, Senior Vice
President, TD Canada Trust, Prairie Region. "Our new branch offers a
popular coin counter machine and customer lounge along with several
other features that make banking with TD friendly and comfortable."
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 right into the presence of customers.
A community room designed for use by groups of customers including families, businesses
and not-for-profit groups. This room is available free-of-charge and
includes business services such as video conferencing capabilities, a
printer and a fax machine.
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.
A coin counter available for use, free-of-charge for TD personal banking customers.
As part of TD Canada Trust's extended hours the branch is open Monday

Contribution to local environmental initiative
Little Green Thumbs which is a part of the Multicultural Heritage Centre
and is an indoor gardening program that gives elementary and high
school students the opportunity to become food producers right in their
own classroom. This hands on, inquiry based education program helps
young people learn the value of their health, the environment and their
community. As students actively co-operate to care for their garden,
they learn about nutrition, environmental stewardship, sustainable food
systems, and community interdependence.
