Unity Bank opens new Phillipsburg area branch

By ,

Unity Bank, headquartered in Clinton, N.J., has opened its new Phillipsburg area branch in Greenwich Township, Warren County.

The new branch, in the Greenwich Station Shopping Center at 1225 Route 22 West, is about a mile from the bank’s previous Phillipsburg area branch, which was in the HomeGoods shopping center at Route 22 and St. James St. in Pohatcong Township.

Janice Bolomey, chief administrative officer for Unity, said moving the branch brought about a number of improvements including accessibility and bank offerings.

“We saw that it would be easier to have a branch located in an area that was easier to get to,” she said.

She noted that the previous branch had an awkward traffic pattern, which involved having to drive through another bank’s parking lot to get to it.

With the new, more modern space, Bolomey said the branch was able to add a drive through ATM. The previous bank only had room for a walk-up ATM, which is less convenient and less secure, she said.

The new full-service branch also has safe deposit boxes, which the old branch did not have room for.

The new branch does have the Unity Bank café that is in all locations where customers can get coffee and snacks and take advantage of free wi-fi.

The new branch will be managed by Gregory Perlman, a resident of Saylorsburg. Perlman has more than 20 years of sales and management experience.

A grand opening celebration will be scheduled at a later date.

Unity Bank has 18 branches in New Jersey and the Greater Lehigh Valley, with a 19th location opening soon on Easton Avenue in Bethlehem Township.
