Washington Trust’s Expansion Continues in Rhode Island

Washington Trust is opening its third branch office in Cranston, Rhode Island in late summer 2012. Our new branch will be located at 2174 Plainfield Pike (the site of the former Tim Horton's shop) near Comstock Parkway and Interstate 295. Scheduled to open fall 2012, the facility is currently undergoing renovations. Upon completion, the 3,600 square foot branch will feature the latest conveniences and technology to meet the banking needs of local depositors, homeowners, businesses, and borrowers. The interior of the full-service branch will feature four teller stations, two customer service areas, management offices, a safe deposit box vault and a walk-up ATM. Exterior conveniences include two-lane drive up banking lanes, a night deposit safe and a drive-up ATM.

“Washington Trust has had tremendous success with our Cranston branches on Reservoir and Oaklawn Avenues,” stated Joseph J. MarcAurele, Washington Trust Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re excited to bring our community banking services to residents and businesses in the western Cranston area.”
