Harris Opens Branch in Bensenville
BENSENVILLE, IL, August 16, 2004 –Harris today announced the opening of a new branch in the O'Hare business corridor, near the intersection of four vibrant communities: Bensenville, Elmhurst, Addison and Elk Grove.
"We want to be where our customers need us to be," said Doras Davila, Vice President and Branch Manager at the new facility. "Looking at the population density in the area- which includes many Harris customers- and the more than 10,000 businesses operating in Bensenville, Elmhurst and the surrounding communities, this location was a logical fit for us."
The new branch, at 201 W. Grand Avenue in Bensenville, features six drive-up banking lanes, with two of those designated ATM lanes. The branch has a bilingual (English and Spanish-speaking) personal banking staff, and customers will enjoy access to a full suite of retail and business banking products.
Harris plans to reach a network total of 200 branches, by 2006.
"Building our Chicagoland presence makes Harris products and services even more accessible to current clients, and to new communities and customers," said Jack Yong, President of Harris in Bensenville. "The most important goal of our growth is to bring more convenience to our customers."
