Ridgewood Savings Bank recently opened its tenth bank in Queens at the Baybridge Commons Shopping Center in Bayside.
The new branch, located at 208-24 Cross Island Parkway, offers a variety of banking services, including checking, savings and certificate of deposit accounts, diverse mortgage and consumer loan options, retirement plans, free online banking with bill pay plus the convenience of a walk-up window, bank-by-phone service, and a 24-hour ATM.
“We look forward to expanding our presence in northern Queens and becoming a vital part of the Bayside community, just as we have throughout several other local neighborhoods,” said William C. McGarry, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ridgewood Savings Bank. “We are excited to bring our wide variety of customer-focused banking services to the residents of this vibrant neighborhood.”
The Bayside bank, which occupies 3,700 square feet and has 13 employees on staff, is running a sweepstakes contest through Saturday, March 3. Customers who enter the Better Banking Sweepstakes will have the chance to win one of four prizes - a Panasonic 42” Plasma TV, an Apple 13” iMac, a Yamaha Portable Keyboard & Bench, and a Sony DVD player.
Several “super” gifts - including a Sony Home Theater System, Apple 2GB Silver Nanos, Toshiba 15” Notebook Computers, and an XBOX 360 game system - will also be offered to customers who sign on to five-, seven-, and 10-year CD accounts. In addition, customers who open a new checking or savings account, or a 13-month CD account, will be rewarded with a gift.
Throughout the grand opening festivities - lasting until Saturday, March 3 - the bank’s hours of operation will be extended, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. until 7 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
