    LONDON, ON, Feb. 23 /CNW/ - BMO Bank of Montreal will open the doors
today to a new 5,500 square foot branch at 1285 Fanshawe Park Road West in
    "It is exciting for BMO to be joining the Fanshawe community and to be
expanding our retail branch network to 14 locations within the city of
London," said Marc Guilbeault, Branch Manager BMO Bank of Montreal. "We
encourage both new and existing customers to come and meet our knowledgeable
staff who are able to provide personal financial advice that is relevant in
our current economic environment."
    The branch is readily equipped to meet the personal needs of those in the
community, as well as the growing demands of the city of London. "London
stands to fare relatively well during the recession thanks to its diverse
economic base," said Robert Kavcic, Economic Analyst, BMO Capital Markets.
"Economic activity in the city spans a range of sectors including health care,
education and financial services, which should provide a buffer that most
other Southern Ontario cities don't have."

    The branch offers longer hours and will operate from:

    Monday to Wednesday   9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
    Thursday              9:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
    Friday                9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
    Saturday              9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

    The branch is also equipped with a full-service drive through ABM, and an
Instabank machine for everyday financial transactions.

    BMO has shown its continuous support to the London community through
donations to the London Health Sciences Center & St. Joseph's Health Care,
University of Western Ontario, Fanshawe College, Salvation Army, United Way
and Women of Distinction. The branch will hold a grand opening ceremony on
March 28, 2009.
