Savings Bank Of Walpole To Open New Branch In Rindge, NH

Keene, NH – Savings Bank of Walpole has announced plans to open a new branch in Rindge, NH. The bank has filed applications with the FDIC and New Hampshire Banking Department to open a branch at 31 Sonja Drive, a site formerly occupied by GFA Credit Union. This will be Savings Bank of Walpole’s seventh branch in the Monadnock Region, and second in a year following the opening of a Winchester, NH branch in late 2021.

“At a time when other banks are either closing branches or being sold to larger out of state banks, Savings Bank of Walpole continues to believe and invest in its home market,” said Mark Bodin, President of Savings Bank of Walpole. “The Monadnock Region is our home and throughout the pandemic we have consistently heard that residents and local businesses want to bank where they know their money will be reinvested in their own community. They quickly find that Savings Bank of Walpole is a bank that understands and cares about their needs and that ‘local’ really does matter.

We look forward to being more than just another bank in town; we plan to be part of the Rindge, Jaffrey and New Ipswich community.”

“Savings Bank of Walpole has a nearly 150-year history of supporting the local communities we serve and we are excited about opening a new branch in Rindge to expand our support of the Monadnock Region,” said Ben Wheeler, Senior VP of Commercial Lending and a lifelong Jaffrey resident. “I look forward to working with local businesses and families and being a great community neighbor.”    

“This will be a full-service branch, offering the same full line of services as Savings Bank of Walpole’s six existing locations in Keene, Walpole and Winchester,” reports Dominic Perkins, the Bank’s Senior Vice President of Retail Administration. “We also plan to have a Mortgage Loan Officer based in Rindge and access to wealth management and other financial services through the Bank’s sister company, NHTrust.”  

Savings Bank of Walpole plans to begin work on renovating the branch this summer with an expected opening in January 2023. Bodin added that Savings Bank of Walpole plans to add five new full-time jobs in Rindge as a result of the new branch opening.
