WAYZATA, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TCF Bank today announced the grand opening of its new branch in the Knollwood Mall area of St. Louis Park, Minnesota. The new branch is located at 8951 W. 36th St. The new branch replaces TCF Bank’s facility located at 8020 Highway 7.
“With the recent redevelopment of the Knollwood Mall property, we have built a new branch that allows us to continue offering convenient access and enhanced customer service,” said Tim Doyle, director of Branch Banking in Minnesota for TCF Bank. “TCF Bank has been in St. Louis Park for 42 years and we are excited to have a new, modern facility to serve our customers.”
Customers will enjoy several convenient enhancements at the new facility including a concierge station to provide timely assistance and information, new cash dispensing equipment at the teller line for faster transactions, video equipment in the drive-through that allows two-way visual communication between the teller and customer, and ATMs in both the drive-through and lobby that are accessible 24 hours a day. The branch is also more convenient for customers to access on W. 36th St. with less congestion and close proximity to the retail shopping in the Knollwood Mall area.
As part of the TCF’s grand opening celebration, TCF Bank will make a financial contribution to St. Louis Park Emergency Program (STEP). STEP is a local non-profit organization that responds to people in crisis who need assistance with basic needs such as food, clothing, transportation and housing. The new Knollwood branch and TCF Bank’s location inside the Cub® Foods store in Knollwood will serve as collection points during the months of June and July to benefit STEP through TCF’s Change Makes Change® program. TCF Bank associates will also be volunteering their time with STEP to support its mission.
TCF is also taking a leadership role in working to improve the financial IQ of people who live in the communities served by TCF. Last year, TCF made a bold commitment to reach two million people over the next three years with the online TCF Financial Learning Center for adults and in-classroom TCF Financial Scholars program for high school students. These programs offer independent online financial education courses on topics ranging from mortgages and credit, to identity protection and paying for higher education. Developed in partnership with EverFi, a leading online education provider, the two programs have reached nearly 30,000 adults and students in all of the communities served by TCF. In Minnesota, the TCF Financial Scholars program is active in 37 schools, with more than 2,800 students taking the course. The TCF Financial Learning Center is available to all TCF customers free of charge and selected course modules are periodically made available to anyone.
Special grand opening offers will also be available through the end of June. Residents can visit the TCF Knollwood branch and enter for a chance to win a 80” Sharp® AQUOS® Smart HDTV and a 1-year Netflix Subscription. See a TCF representative at the Knollwood branch for details on the sweepstakes.
As a result of the grand opening of the new branch at 8951 W. 36th St, the TCF Bank branch at 8020 Highway 7 is now closed. All services, including home loans, will continue to be available at the new location.
