North Shore Bank recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of their new Beverly office located at 140 Brimbal Avenue — the site of the newly-built North Shore Crossing, which will eventually house Whole Foods Market, as well as many other retailers.

Kevin M. Tierney, Sr., North Shore Bank President and Chief Executive Officer stated: 

The reaction from the people in the community has been overwhelmingly positive.  Customers are really enjoying a new spacious location to do their banking.” He went on to say, “Everyone who visits tells us how much they love the look of the office and that they appreciate our significant investment in city of Beverly.

The bank is confident that the new open-space concept of the branch will prove to be a pleasant and convenient place to conduct financial affairs. Each staff member has also been trained as universal personal bankers to offer advice and expertise on consumer and business banking, as well as investment options. In addition to the latest technology inside the branch, the new full-service location provides both drive-up teller and ATM services, as well as a coin counting machine. 

As part of the celebration Tierney presented Heather Johnston, Director of Donor Relations for Beverly Bootstraps with a $1,000 donation to the food pantry. Johnston said of the bank’s contribution:

This gift is truly appreciated and will help us as we work to provide families and individuals with critical resources they need to achieve self-sufficiency.” She continued, “We are especially grateful for North Shore Bank’s support now when the need is so great.

The bank has recently entered into a merger agreement with Beverly Bank – creating an organization with more resources to better serve the surrounding communities. Upon completion of the merger, North Shore Bank will grow to $1.4 billion in assets and will operate out of eighteen full-service locations.
