Region – UniBank, along with local officials and members of the business community, celebrated the grand opening Oct. 4 of its newest full-service branch at 193 Boston Turnpike in the new Lakeway Commons plaza (at the former site of Spag’s) in Shrewsbury.

The new Shrewsbury UniBank branch is a full-service branch providing personal banking, business banking, and investment services. A coin machine and night drop provide added convenience to customers. In addition, the branch features an Interactive Teller Machine (ITM). This features all the benefits of a traditional ATM, plus the added convenience of connecting with a live Customer Contact Center Representative during Customer Contact Center hours.

In his remarks during the Ribbon Cutting ceremony at the new branch, UniBank President and CEO Sam S. Pepper, Jr. announced that UniBank has committed to donating $50,000 in contributions to the Shrewsbury community through charitable giving for 2017-2018.

Pepper also announced that the first $11,000 in support is being dedicated to a unique Community Giving Program. The bank has identified eight worthy Shrewsbury community organizations to be a part of this program. Members of the community are asked to come to UniBank’s Shrewsbury branch to vote for the organizations of their choosing.

The top three organizations receiving the most votes will receive top awards. First place will receive $5,000, second place will receive $2,500, and third place will receive $1,000. All other organizations will all receive $500. Organizations selected include: Shrewsbury Youth and Family Services, Shrewsbury Public Library, Lake Quinsigamond Commission, St. Anne’s Human Services, Special Olympics, Veterans Inc., Thom Worcester Area Early Intervention, and Shrewsbury Council on Aging.

“We’re a community bank that has been serving the region for more than 147 years,” Pepper said. “We are excited to invite the public to our branch in support of these organizations and the Shrewsbury community.”

In celebration of the opening of its 14th branch, several special offers are available for new and existing customers including premium rates on home equity lines of credit, CD and Checking specials, and Fast Track Loans and Money Market specials for businesses. There is also a raffle for a Shrewsbury Gift Basket containing gift cards redeemable at local merchant locations valued at $2,000. (See branch for official rules.) Visit www.unibank.com/shrewsbury-specials/ for details on specials or call the branch at 508-365-1500.

The branch hours of the new Shrewsbury branch are Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. UniBank’s Shrewsbury branch is managed by Shrewsbury resident Matthew J. Armenti, relationship branch manager.
