TD Canada Trust opens new concept branch in Markham

MARKHAM, ON, Nov. 26, 2011 /CNW/ - TD Canada Trust today opened its first state-of-the-art branch in Markham. Located at 9970 Kennedy Road, south of Major MacKenzie Drive, the new branch is full service, and includes an open concept design, with high-tech digital displays, customer lounge and other special features to enhance the banking experience.

"Those who have been to our new concept branches in other cities across Canada have really taken to them so far, and we're delighted to be able to bring this new branch design to Markham for the first time," said Kathy Schulz, Branch Manager. "The new features of the branch will really make the banking experience more comfortable for all of our customers, whether they're here for everyday banking, to inquire about a loan, or to meet with an advisor."

Features of the new branch include:

  • An open concept design that helps TD serve customers better by moving financial specialists out from behind desks directly to the customers.
  • A Web Kiosk welcomes customers to surf the web and check their accounts on EasyWeb.
  • A Kids' Area equipped with fun and educational children's books.
  • 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 Community Boardroom 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 and a printer.
  • Digital Displays mounted throughout the branch to provide customers with current information about TD products and services.

In addition to the grand-opening festivities and ribbon-cutting ceremony, TD Bank Group presented a $5,000 donation to the Town of Markham as part of TD's ongoing commitment to the community. This gift will help the town plant trees and other plants to spruce up a local park.

The new branch is wheelchair accessible and features full-service Green Machine ATMs which are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It also offers a full array of personal and small business products and services, including Financial Services Representatives, Small Business Advisors and TD Waterhouse Financial Planners.
