Merchants Bank opened its new location in Easton on Tuesday, across from its former spot at 1 Centre Square.
As part of the ceremony, the bank donated $500 to the Easton Ambassadors Program.
The Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce marked the grand reopening with a ribbon cutting at the bank’s new location on the ground floor of the historic Lenny’s Menswear building.
The Easton Ambassadors provide hospitality services to the city and clean areas in front of businesses throughout the downtown. The program is part of the Greater Easton Development Partnership.
Architect Jeff Martinson of The Martinson Group LLC in Easton designed the project, and Alfero Co. Inc. of Easton served as construction manager.
At 3,122 square feet, the interior of the new branch has three offices occupied by a mortgage originator, regional manager and commercial lender. Other highlights include displays of historic photos of the building inside a large board room open to the community, as well as large prints in the main branch of artwork featuring the Crayola Experience, the bridge connecting New Jersey to Easton and other cityscapes.
