Weekend Banking Officially Opens at ANZ New Lynn

ANZ New Lynn, the Bank's busiest branch in New Zealand, will officially open for weekend banking this Saturday 17 August.

His Worship the Mayor Bob Harvey and ANZ Managing Director Dr Murray Horn will officially open the branch at 10.00am. Located at the corner of Memorial Drive and Great North Road, ANZ New Lynn is now open from 10am to 4pm every Saturday.

The team at ANZ New Lynn are putting on a barbecue to celebrate the occasion - the proceeds of which will go to Asthma New Zealand.

Branch Manager Brenda Jones says weekend opening is an initiative which has received a great deal of positive customer feedback.

"Our customers are delighted that the branch is now open on Saturday's as lunch times are getting busier and often shorter, so they are leaving their banking to the weekend," she says.

"Customers are doing more than just personal banking, they are taking out home loans and conducting business banking as well. We have business specialists on site on Saturdays and have staff that can speak Cantonese and Mandarin to cater to the growing number of Chinese customers."

ANZ has a number of branches in Auckland, Tauranga, Christchurch and Dunedin that are open on weekends or late night Thursdays. ANZ's George Street branch in Dunedin opened on Saturday's for the first time last weekend.

Weekend banking follows the launch of ANZ's new low-cost transaction accounts last month, and the announcement that it will appoint local CEO's to run 'shadow-franchises' in a bid to further improve customer satisfaction.

All of the normal weekday banking services are available at ANZ New Lynn on Saturday (there will be limited international services).
