Columbia Bank to Open Newest Branch in West Orange

Thomas J. Kemly, President and CEO of Columbia Bank, is pleased to announce the grand opening of their 51st full-service branch location in New Jersey, located at 501 Pleasant Valley Way in West Orange.  The new full-service branch will be managed by Angela Mattina.

Official “Grand Opening” festivities will begin at 9:00 am on Tuesday, June 18, with special promotions, an exclusive free gift given to the first 100 visitors, and complimentary promotional items while supplies last.  Columbia’s grand opening specials include promotional Certificates of Deposit (CDs), Checking Accounts that feature high-yield rates or free streaming subscriptions, and a Home Equity Line of Credit designed for debt consolidation or getting started with your “dream project.”

As part of Columbia’s community support efforts, for each new account opened and meeting certain deposit requirements through August 31, 2019, the bank will donate $10 to one of five West Orange-based charities or community organizations – The Boys and Girls Club of West Orange, the West Orange Education Foundation & Scholarship Fund, the West Orange Public Library, Turtle Back Zoo and The South Mountain Reservation Conservancy.  In addition to the donations, the top three designated organizations will receive an added bonus of $2,500, $1,000 or $500, depending on their final vote totals.

According to Mr. Kemly, “We look forward to bringing full-service personal and business banking to West Orange and its surrounding communities.  Columbia prides itself on offering an impressive selection of convenient, value-added banking services…from traditional consumer passbook, checking and savings accounts…to loans and residential mortgages…to online and mobile banking with free applications that turn your mobile device into your personal 24/7 banker…to commercial and SBA loans, lines of credit and business banking services designed to help any business grow.”  The bank also offers retirement, health savings, wealth management and title services.

Conveniently located with plenty of free parking, Columbia’s West Orange office has been designed around an enhanced customer experience featuring the latest in banking technology, including a video message screen, digital rate display and an “Intelligent ATM,” plus a modern interior design, low profile service units, private conference areas, safe deposit boxes and a coin counter.  Mr. Kemly also noted that “visitors to our new branch will always receive quality services, second to none!”

Serving New Jersey since 1927, Columbia Bank has earned a 5-Star (“Superior”) Rating from Bauer Financial, Inc., their highest performance ranking, indicating that the bank is both financially sound and has the resources to deal with a variety of economic conditions.
