GLASTONBURY, Conn. — William Crawford IV, CEO of United Bank and United Financial Bancorp Inc., announced that United Bank will expand its already-significant presence in Glastonbury, Conn. by building a full-service banking branch at 2670 Main St. in Glastonbury.
In addition, Crawford announced that United Bank — known in Connecticut as Rockville Bank: a division of United Bank — will be opening a new branch just over the town line in East Hartford inside the ShopRite supermarket located at 31 Main St., East Hartford, Conn. This branch will provide extended hours and seven-days-a-week banking.
The bank’s new Glastonbury location is on the corner of Main Street and New London Turnpike, directly across the street from Katz Hardware, and will be an approximately 2,200-square-foot, full-service branch that will provide retail and commercial banking, investment-advisory services, mortgage banking, and products for small businesses. This location will also provide night-deposit services, a drive-thru teller, and an ATM. For added customer convenience, the bank plans to have four teller stations and four offices for branch staff and lending professionals.
The supermarket branch in ShopRite will also provide retail and commercial deposit and loan products, mortgage-loan origination, small-business products, night-deposit services, and an ATM, along with sufficient teller stations and office space.
Over the past two years, Rockville Bank has significantly expanded its operations in Glastonbury. In addition to the branches at 1009 Hebron Ave. — the Shops at Addison Village — and 902 Main St. in South Glastonbury, the bank established its corporate headquarters at 45 Glastonbury Blvd. in August 2012 and occupies substantial office space on the first and third floors of 95 Glastonbury Blvd., which includes space for its employee training center, mortgage lenders, and commercial-banking team.
“Glastonbury has been a wonderful home for Rockville Bank and now United Bank. Expanding our presence in Glastonbury will create another first-class community-banking destination for our customers and give them full access to a team of experienced local bankers,” said Crawford. “The opportunity to open at this location on Main Street is very exciting because we will be enhancing the public’s convenience to our banking services and teams while building a branch that fits the Glastonbury landscape in what is already a well-traveled, well-maintained part of town.”
