There are a lot of banks and financial institutions in West Roxbury, and TD Bank is coming soon to Centre Street.
Banks don't make great storefronts, but just as Mary Mulvey Jacobson, president of the West Roxbury Business and Professional Association, said, "Banks don't open branches unless there is business for them so it is a good sign of strength."
So West Roxbury has money, at least enough money for a 15th bank to be opening up on Centre Street. TD Bank leveled the old Zoots building to make way for a new bank at the corner of Maple and Centre streets (see attached pics).
Said Jacobson about TD Bank coming to the neighborhood, "I’m happy to see them in. They’re a good quality bank and dealing with the people from TD have been nothing but helpful."
Zoots also found another location, at Willow Street, in the Roche Bros plaza, said Jacobson.
With another bank coming will you be switching your alliance to the TD Bank, as in the TD Bank Garden, where our beloved Boston Celtics play? Or will you be staying put at your bank? Maybe you've got accounts at different institutions. Or maybe you just stuff your money under your mattress.
Which bank, or banks, do you use, or not use, and why?
