Martin's Getting More In-Store Bank Branch Locations
Union First Market Bank will open seven addition in-store branches at Martin’s Food Markets stores in Virigina. The bank currently operates branches at 22 Martin’s locations in the state. The new branches will extend the companies’ partnership, which began in March 2010 when Martin’s parent, Ahold USA, acquired the Ukrop’s Super Markets Chain, beyond the Richmond, Va., market area.
The locations of the seven branches will be Winchester, Waynesboro, Stephens City, Harrisonburg and Staunton and Culpeper, Va.
Noted Giant/Martin’s president Rick Herring: “We strive to provide our customers with a variety of solutions to meet their everyday shopping needs. An in-store bank branch gives our customers the added convenience of conducting their banking and grocery needs all under one roof.”
“Being able to offer our customers a convenient place to bank is important,” said G. William Beale, CEO of Richmond-based Union First Market Bankshares. “Union recently announced a branch acquisition in Harrisonburg, and now we are adding seven new banking locations in the western part of Virginia to our network. By this summer, we expect to have nearly 100 branches throughout Virginia, more than any other Virginia-based bank and another milestone as we work towards building the next great Virginia bank.”
The two companies recently teamed up to support the Central Virginia Food Bank’s “Share a Holiday Meal” program and plan to collaborate on similar initiatives in the new service area. When the new branches open in May, Union First Market Bank will operate within 29 Martin’s stores in Virginia.
The in-store bank branches will be located at the following MARTIN'S locations and are expected to open in May:
