Rochester, MN – February 17, 2015 – Associated Bank has opened a new branch bank at 1985 Commerce Drive NW, in Rochester.

According to branch manager Michael Bowers, the new branch is Associated’s fourth in Rochester and replaces the former in-store Hy-Vee North operation which closed in July.

“Our exciting new Commerce Drive branch provides our customers with an enhanced banking experience thanks to a blend of enhanced customer service and digital technology in a vibrant, contemporary setting,” Bowers said.

The 3,000-square-foot operation features Associated’s updated brand architecture complete with full service teller lobby and drive-through banking. A technology kiosk located in the lobby allows customers to sign up for online banking, interact with mobile applications, and access online loan origination capabilities. Lending and investment service professionals are also available at the branch.

“Associated’s investment in this new branch reflects its commitment to both the greater Rochester area as well as the dynamic development taking place in this part of our community,” Bowers said.
