TORONTO, July 6, 2011 /CNW/ - Whether renting or owning for a long time or short period in the community, most residents of the Greater Toronto Area feel very happy about where they live, according to the TD Canada Trust GTA Regional Report. TD Canada Trust is proud to join downtown Toronto's urban chic community with the opening of its "new concept" branch to serve new and longtime residents. Located at Lake Shore Blvd. and Bathurst Street, the 5,300 square foot branch is situated near historic Fort York, Exhibition Place and Coronation Park on the waterfront, includes an open concept design, with high-tech digital displays, customer lounge and other special features to enhance the banking experience.

"We're very thrilled to celebrate the opening of our new concept branch and be part of such a wonderful and vibrant community," says Jarod Phillips, Branch Manager, TD Canada Trust. "The many innovative features here allow us the opportunity to serve our customers in a completely new way - regardless of what they need; our customers have access to solutions and great advice in a welcoming atmosphere."

The poll also found that three quarters of GTA residents love living in their communities (77%) and enjoy meeting and getting to know their neighbours (76%). "Although we have been open for a few weeks, we wanted to celebrate with a grand opening in order to meet our new neighbours, and give the residents in the area an event where they can meet and catch up with friends new and old," added Phillips.

Features of the new branch include:

  • An open concept design that helps TD serve customers better by moving financial specialists out from behind desks directly to the customers
  • Digital Displays mounted throughout the branch to provide customers with current information about TD products and services
  • A Customer Lounge with a coffee station lets customers wait in comfort if they arrive early for an appointment or are waiting for their friends or family to complete their banking
