Better banking, insurance, and investment services available at 5688 South Transit Road

Lockport deserves a local bank. And now it has one. Evans Bank has established banking services at 5688 South Transit Road in Lockport, representing the community bank’s 14th banking location in Western New York and its first in Niagara County. Evans celebrated the opening of its new, full-service financial center with a ceremonial ribbon cutting this morning. The addition of banking services in Lockport enhances its current personal and commercial insurance offerings.

“Our mission at Evans is to help our customers meet their financial goals,” said David J. Nasca, President and CEO of Evans Bank. “We’ve enjoyed assisting Lockport with its insurance needs for many years, and look forward to helping customers and the business community meet their overall financial goals with better banking services.”

The full-service Lockport financial center now offers banking, insurance, and wealth management services and features drive-thru ATM services, a cash recycler machine and a Video Teller Machine. Cash recyclers are a secure banking technology that automates standard transactions and accepts, dispenses, and stores cash; allowing an enhanced level of customer service. The video teller looks like a traditional ATM, but offers personalized, face-to-face service via video conferencing. Customers simply touch the screen and talk with an Evans Bank representative to cash checks, make deposits and withdrawals, make loan payments, transfer money between accounts, check balances, and more.

In August 2015, Evans was the first locally-based bank to introduce a video teller machine to Western New York customers at its rebuilt Lancaster financial center. The Evans video teller in Lockport is the bank’s second and the first-of-its-kind in Niagara County.

The phone number for the Evans Lockport financial center is (716) 433-3171. The office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Extended video teller service hours coincide with the Evans Customer Experience Center: Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. ATM access is available 24 hours.

Evans will continue its grand opening celebration throughout the week with daily activities and visits from local businesses, including Lockport favorites like Frey’s Tasty Treat, Molinaro’s Ristorante, and Kalamata Family Restaurant.
