On September 13th, Franklin Savings Bank held an official ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the grand opening of its new full-service office in Merrimack.

The new 2,161 sq. ft. office, located at Merrimack Village Shopping Center at 1 Dobson Way, features two drive-up lanes, two smart ATMs, a coffee bar, and a technology bar with digital displays to enable staff to demonstrate the bank’s diverse line of electronic services to customers.

A few members of the bank’s Merrimack Advisory Group were also in attendance, including Melissa Ballard Sullivan, President of the Merrimack Chamber of Commerce; Kara Olsen, owner of Laconia Refrigeration; and Randy Turmel, President of Randy Turmel & Associates, Inc.
