OLDS — Bigger building, longer hours.

These are two of the key changes that have accompanied the relocation of BMO Bank of Montreal’s Olds branch.

The chartered bank opened the doors to its new branch in the Cornerstone Shopping Centre at No. 100, 6900 46th St., on Monday.

At 6,500 square feet, it’s almost double the size of its predecessor, which was located at 5018 50th Ave.

“We’ve had a couple of customers that have even commented that the old branch pretty much would fit into just the customer area in this branch,” said manager Ann Reid.

She added that the number of offices has increased from about seven to 15, which will help accommodate the branch’s 16 personal banking and investment staff.

These include an adviser with Nesbitt Burns, a financial planner and commercial bankers.

A financial services co-ordinator now greets customers at the door when they arrive.

In addition to offering drive-through banking service using an automated banking machine, the new branch is open on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays to Thursdays it operates from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Fridays its hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Reid said the bank’s old property has been put up for sale.
