Peoples Bank to merge East Wenatchee,
Wenatchee Financial Center branches

Peoples Bank announced in November that it will consolidate its East Wenatchee branch at Safeway Foods with its Wenatchee Financial Center branch. Combined branch operations will
be placed at the Wenatchee Financial Center, located at 901 N. Mission
Street. This full-service branch offers personal and business banking
services, real estate and commercial loan centers, as well as safe
deposit boxes. All East Wenatchee branch staff were offered the
opportunity to transfer to the Wenatchee Financial Center and retain
employment with Peoples Bank. Branch consolidation will be completed on March 1, 2018.
“After careful consideration, we determined that the size and
accessibility of our East Wenatchee Office, located within the Safeway
Store, was no longer meeting our branch standards for delivering the
best full relationship banking customer experience,” said Mark
Swanson, Peoples Bank Regional Retail Banking Manager. “We apologize
in advance to our customers for any inconvenience that may result from this change.”
Peoples Bank is committed to long-term growth and success in the
Wenatchee Valley. The Bank’s first branch in Wenatchee opened in 2003
and moved to what is now known as the Wenatchee Financial Center in
2013. The East Wenatchee Office opened in 2004. As the market
continues to grow, Peoples Bank will evaluate future expansion
opportunities to add a full-service Peoples Bank Branch in East Wenatchee.
All customer accounts, debit card access, and online and mobile
banking services will remain unchanged through the transition.
Affected customers can contact either branch, or customer service at
(800) 584-8859, with questions about their accounts. Hours and contact
information for both branches can be found at
