Good progress is being made with preparations to open a new Caisse populaire Alliance location at Nipissing Plaza, 390 Lakeshore Drive according to a news release.
Officials with the Caisse have decided to add more services to the new location.
"We're so committed to investing in the community of Ferris that we have decided to add enhanced financial planning services to what we'll be offering the people and businesses at this end of the city," explains Regional Manager Norm St. Amour.
"That means we've had to rejig our plans. We have added some offices and an entrance specifically for the financial planning services at our new location. That has added a few weeks to our targeted date for our opening, but we're still looking forward to opening this spring," he adds.
The new location is now expected to open in early May.
The seven new staff brought on board have all completed their training. Some are behind the scenes in organizing for the new site, while others are building experience by meeting with members at the existing Cassells Street location.
Caisse populaire Alliance President Pierre Dorval, says “there continues to be great feedback from the community of Ferris”.
"We are still receiving lots of positive compliments on our expansion, and many people are anxious for the doors to open. We've also had many businesses on Lakeshore Drive express their support for a return of financial services to the area, and we want to thank them for welcoming us."
