LOS ANGELES — Chase announced today it will open new full-service bank branches in 22 Albertsons stores in Southern and Central California this year. The first branches are now open in Kern, San Diego, Riverside, Orange and Los Angeles Counties.
"These new locations reaffirm our commitment to make Chase even more convenient for our customers, especially when they can get their shopping and banking done in one stop," said Pablo Sanchez, Chase's region executive, in a statement.
Branch bankers will offer customers a full range of services from checking and savings accounts to mortgages, business loans and investments from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
Each participating Albertsons branch also will include a Chase ATM to provide additional hours of service. Chase plans to hire about 200 employees to provide personal banking, loans and financial advice to customers of the 22 new branches.
