Westborough – Officials from St. Mary’s Credit Union, the town of Westborough and the Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce gathered for a ceremonial ground breaking at the site of the soon-to-be St. Mary’s Westborough branch Dec. 11.  The new branch will be located at the site of the former Friendly’s Restaurant, 96 Turnpike Rd, near the intersection of Routes 9 and 30.

Anthony Battista, the bank’s vice president of marketing, noted that the new branch, which is projected to open in mid-2013, is timed to coincide with the bank’s 100th anniversary celebration next year.

Gerard Richer, the chair of the Board of Directors, told those gathered that St. Mary’s was “happy to be coming to Westborough.”

“This will help us enhance our services to this town and the surrounding communities,” he added.

Speaking on behalf of the town of Westborough, Town Manager Jim Malloy thanked the bank officials for choosing to expand into Westborough.

“We are looking forward to St. Mary’s being part of our business community,” he added.

Barbara Clifford, the chair of the Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce, echoed those thoughts.

“You have made a fine choice to open here,” she told the bank officials. “This is such a prime central location. We are all looking forward to cutting the ribbon in 2013.”

The new branch will have approximately 3,000 square feet of space and include a drive-up service window, a drive-up ATM, a coin counting machine, a night deposit box and a distinctive tower that will serve as a landmark at the busy intersection of routes 9 and 30, bank officials said.
