ANZ Christchurch Branches To Open Saturdays

Tuesday 12 March 2002

For Immediate Release

ANZ Christchurch Branches To Open Saturdays

Two of ANZ Bank's Christchurch branches will now open from 10am to 2pm every Saturday.

ANZ Shirley located at the Palms Mall on Marshland Road and ANZ Riccarton at 37 - 41 Rotheram Street, will begin their new opening hours from this Saturday 16 March.

ANZ Christchurch District Manager Barry Helem says the Saturday openings come in response to positive customer feedback following an extended opening hours initiative prior to Christmas.

"In the two weekends leading up to Christmas last year we opened 33 branches around the country on Saturdays, including three in Christchurch," says Mr Helem.

"The response we had to this from not only ANZ customers but those of other banks was great. We decided to act on this feedback and address the customer demand."

Mr Helem says ANZ already has a number of branches around the country that are open on weekends or late night Thursdays.

"Customers in areas that already have branches open longer hours such as Auckland, Tauranga and Queenstown have appreciated the extra day ANZ is giving them to get their banking done. I am delighted to be able to offer the same extra level of service to Christchurch residents.

"Most of the normal weekday banking services are available on Saturday (there will be limited international services). Anyone is welcome to come in and do their banking, this isn't just for ANZ's Shirley or Riccarton customers."

Mr Helem says that from this Saturday, the Bank will waive the normal loan approval fee for anyone who takes out a new home loan or tops-up an existing home loan at Riccarton or Shirley branches on Saturdays for a limited period. This offer is for home loans over $50,000 that are approved by 6 April and drawn down by 6 May.
