At the invitation of the Quinnipiac and Greater New Haven chambers of commerce, Guilford Savings Bank (GSB) officially broke ground on Aug. 12 on its latest branch office at the intersection of Washington and Blakeslee avenues in North Haven. Leaders from both chambers joined representatives from The New Haven Group, PhaseZero, and the bank to officially turn the soil at the construction site.

Anticipated to open in early 2021, this newly designed branch office will be the seventh location for GSB with full-service banking centers currently in Old Saybrook, Madison, North Madison, Guilford, and Branford.

“While we have been meeting the needs of customers statewide for some time, this newest branch location moves our physical footprint further into Connecticut,” said GSB President and CEO Timothy Geelan. “On the Interstate 91 corridor, near the New Haven metro yet equidistant from the active communities of Wallingford and Hamden, we see the possibilities of this region and seek to be partners with the residents and businesses of all sizes.”

Construction of the one-story, 2,000-square-foot facility is currently underway with a January 2021 grand opening date on the horizon.
