BRIDGEPORT, CT – People’s United Bank celebrated the grand opening of its 33rd Long Island location on March 30 with the Bayport branch at 693 Montauk Highway
“We’re pleased to announce this organic expansion of our franchise in Long Island,” said Dom Geraci, vice president and market manager for the People’s United Long Island market. “As the premier regional commercial bank in the Northeast and one of the strongest banks in the nation, People’s United is looking forward to serving the financial needs of even more Long Island residents in our new Bayport office.”
People’s United will offer a full range of banking services in Bayport, from retail products, to commercial loans, payroll processing, merchant services, business credit cards, 401k administration services, financial advisory and wealth management and trust services.
The branch features two 24-hour ATMs (one lobby and one drive-up), a free self-service coffee bar, complete with a stock quotation machine so customers can check on their investments, a free self-serve coin-counting machine, and a plasma television set airing financial news networks.
