PROVIDENCE – Bank Rhode Island celebrated the opening of its new branch in Wakefield in South Kingstown, its 19th location, with a ribbon cutting on May 23.
Designed to blend into the historic atmosphere of the village of Wakefield, the yellow two-story building suggests the style of a Georgian-era house. The new branch features private offices and meeting space that is available for customers to meet the bank’s commercial, business, investment and mortgage specialists.
“Not only are we excited to have a presence here and serve the banking needs of South County residents, but as someone who has spent their entire life in South County, I know how great this community is and we’re dedicated to continuing the tradition as good corporate neighbors,” said BankRI President and CEO Mark J. Meiklejohn at the ribbon cutting.
The branch officially opened on May 19 on Main Street in the downtown area of the village of Wakefield.
