Comerica Bank will open a new banking center at W. Grand Blvd. and Third on Tues., Nov. 12.
The move is part of the bank’s $3 million investment into reshaping its Detroit presence announced in 2017.
The new street-level banking center completes a relocation that first began in 2017 when Comerica sold its W. Grand Blvd-Sterling property to Henry Ford Health System (HFHS) to help to pave the way for a new cancer center.
To further support this initiative, Comerica also donated $100,000 to HFHS.
The opening of the new W. Grand Blvd.-Third banking center in Detroit’s New Center business district replaces Comerica’s banking center operating inside the Fisher Building (3009 W. Grand Blvd), which closed Friday, Nov. 8 at 5 p.m.
Comerica will also serve customers through two Banker Connect interactive teller-line machines offering customers access to a virtual customer service representative. The Banker Connect stations are moving from the corner of Lincoln and W. Grand Blvd. to the new W. Grand and Third banking center.
Banker Connect offers extended service hours (Mon.-Fri. 8 a.m.-10 p.m. ET and Sat. 8 a.m.-5 p.m. ET). The service representative can assist customers make cash deposits with immediate availability, deposit cash or checks, withdraw cash with choice of denomination, transfer money, make installment payments and receive additional account information. A walk-up ATM will also provide customers additional service at the W. Grand-Third banking center.
“Our investment in Detroit is built on how we help customers through our network of banking centers throughout the city,” says Michael T. Ritchie, Comerica Bank Michigan Market president.
“As we reflect proudly on 170 years of service, we will continue to look ahead and seek opportunities to impact our communities. Our new banking center in Detroit’s New Center, which is part the overall investment in reshaping our Detroit presence, provides a more convenient location that improves access and services we can provide.”
In addition to 20 Detroit banking centers, Comerica’s Michigan headquarters in the downtown business district operates as the central hub serving Comerica’s banking and operations centers located in nearly 80 communities across the state. Comerica has invested over $20 million into its Michigan headquarters since 2010.
Following the sale of W. Grand Blvd-Sterling property to HFHS, Comerica Bank opened a banking center in the historic Penobscot Building in 2018 to complete the relocation of its nearby Fort-Washington banking center.
