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."
