The rehabilitation of upper Main Street continues apace: is getting ready to open its second branch in Woodbridge next month.
The bank's new branch address is at 624 Main Street; if that's not familiar, just look for the . Northfield's new building is right next door.
The bank is taking advantage of the proximity to meet its new neighbors in the area. Northfield staff members will hold a meet-and-greet in the lobby of the Woodbridge Community Center next week. On Monday, April 23 from 5 pm to 7 pm and Tuesday, April 24 from 9 am to 11 am, bank staffers will be on hand to meet members of the community and answer any questions.
The actual grand opening will take place with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, May 12.
The upper Main Street Northfield facility will feature some cutting-edge amenities, like intelligent ATMs which will allow customers to make deposits without the need for an envelope. There will also be a customer waiting lounge, free coin counting, private customer service offices for greater privacy, as well as a free parking lot and drive up service.
Maria Weinstein, the new branch manager, isn't new to the area. She's a bank vice president and previously managed Northfield’s nearby Rahway office. Northfield said in a statement that Weinstein "is an active member of the greater Woodbridge community, who [volunteers] her time at the , [in Iselin], and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at Rahway."
Northfield has a host of plans to celebrate their May 12 grand opening:
- From 9 am to 1 pm, the branch will have a Fun Bus on the premises for children from ages 2 to 7;
- Customers will also be able to enjoy a variety of activities, including a game prize wheel, a caricature artist, and refreshments;
