BUFFALO, N.Y.—M&T Bank will open its new Ellicottville branch Monday, February 13, continuing its longstanding commitment to the Cattaraugus County community. The new Washington Street branch will have a fresh look and upgraded technology, including a new drive-up ATM to offer increased access to customers on the go.
“Our new Ellicottville branch is another example of our commitment and ongoing investment in Western New York, a region we’re proud to call home,” said M&T Bank Retail Market Manager Jim Jarosz. “In addition to the benefits our new location brings for customers, like a drive-up ATM, it also delivers benefits for the community—we’ve reinvested in a vacant property and returned it to productive use.”
The bank’s previous location at 3 Washington Street will close at 2 p.m. Friday, February 10, and the new branch, approximately two blocks down the road, at 47 Washington Street will open for regular business hours at 9 a.m. Monday, February 13.
“M&T Bank has been in Ellicottville for a long time, and we plan to stay here, serving our local business and retail customers for decades to come,” Jarosz added.
The familiar, friendly faces of M&T’s Ellicottville branch staff will remain at the new location, which provides ample parking and drive-through ATM. The branch will also offer safety deposit boxes, as well as business specialists, such as an M&T Business Banking Relationship Manager to assist local business owners, an M&T Bank Mortgage Officer and an M&T Securities Registered Representative to assist with customers’ non-deposit investment needs.
“Ellicottville is such a vibrant community, and we’re so proud to be a part of it,” said Christina Smith, Manager of the M&T Bank Ellicottville branch. “When we open our new doors, this new branch will allow us to even better serve our neighbors and support the success of local businesses, providing additional convenience and accessibility for our customers.”
Customers can visit M&T’s new location from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Wednesday; 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday; and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday.
M&T, which owns the 3 Washington Street property, is already fielding requests from individuals and businesses interested in purchasing the building.
Headquartered in Buffalo at One M&T Plaza, M&T Bank is the Buffalo region’s top deposit holder and Small Business Administration (SBA) lender.
