Penn Community Bank is going to fully renovate its Bristol Branch beginning this month. Located on Mill Street in the heart of Bristol Borough, the branch is the next bank facility to undergo revitalization work as part of the network-wide initiative.
“Bristol has been an important part of the Penn Community Bank story since the beginning,” said president and CEO Jeane M. Vidoni. “We’re thrilled to invest in our physical locations in a way that expresses who we are as an institution and increase the quality of interactions between our team members and the community.”
The network revitalization focuses on design and layout changes that offer enhancements that address changing health and safety considerations introduced by the pandemic in public spaces and interaction areas, and additional investment in technology to promote an interactive and intuitive customer experience.
Similar to the recent work at the Perkasie – Market Street Branch, renovations at the Bristol location will encompass interior and exterior phases. Inside, customers and team members will experience increased branding features and messaging, refreshed finishes, curated furnishings, restructured teller lines and customer interaction points and more. On the outside, ATM upgrades, drive-up updates and enhanced signage will highlight the bank’s mission and service commitments to both customers visiting the branch and the community at large.
“Our tagline says, ‘Here We Are & Here We Grow.’ This type of investment is exactly what that statement is all about,” said Bernard Tynes, director of marketing. “We’ve grown with Bristol for decades and we’re committed to growing with this community for years to come. That’s what values-driven community banking is all about.”
The project is led by Diane Brown, EVP, chief administrative officer, and includes an inter-departmental team of Jake Iampietro, SVP, director of retail banking; Bernard Tynes, SVP, director of marketing; Jessica Sweeney, VP, director of building operations and planning; and Melissa Belier, VP, retail strategy and distribution manager.
