The Supermarket Bank® – A Proven In-Store Retail Branch Solution

Banks in grocery stores? Placing a financial center in a supermarket was pioneered in 1984 by Financial Supermarkets, Inc. and has helped numerous banks and credit unions across the U.S. experience significant growth and client loyalty. Branching via retail financial centers is a quick and cost-effective means of gaining market share, preventing competition from gaining a foothold, and meeting goals for growth and expansion. This is the beauty of The Supermarket Bank®.

What is The Supermarket Bank®?

The Supermarket Bank® is a custom-designed retail branch program placed in a grocery store or supermarket and built specifically for the retail environment. Our full-service financial centers average approximately 550 to 700 square feet of innovative and multi-functional space. Yet, we have experience in designs ranging from 100 to over 2,500 square feet. Specifically, our understanding of how the digital transformation plays out in creating unique branch experiences for your customers/members is our specialty. In other words, no other construction company can come close!

Across the country, investors continue to develop retail shopping centers to offer more services in growing areas. Placing a branch in a location of high retail traffic not only becomes a convenience for your existing customers/members but grants you brand recognition and access to your competitors’ customers/members. Undeniably, a solid solution for branch expansion.
