These photos are from the grand opening and ribbon cutting of the new Chase Bank located at the corner of Hawthorne Blvd. and 182nd St. in Torrance which was held Friday, October 26. The event was attended by the Mayor, a few city council members and representatives from the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC). While it may seem that there are more Chase Banks than Starbucks in Torrance these days, this branch is a little different than others in the area. The new branch was built “green” and the technology inside the bank is different with its upgraded ATM’s. From what I can tell, the purpose is to allow customers to do more transactions without the assistance of a teller. For instance, the new ATMs will provide currency in denominations other than just twenty dollar bills. The bank has also included a drive up ATM as well as the walk up type for after hours banking.
Chase Bank is offering some tempting offers with cash rewards for opening new accounts with them, with up to $500 available if you open the account with a large enough deposit. With today’s interest rates, that is a pretty nice bonus. If interested, visit the new branch for more details.
