Choice Bank is pleased to announce the launch of a new branch in the heart of downtown Moorhead. Working in close conjunction with development and property management firm Epic Companies, and Downtown Moorhead Inc., a non-profit committed to the revitalization of downtown Moorhead. We are set to open our doors to the public in early 2019!
Choice will be one of several commercial tenants that will be moving into floors one and two in the distinctive Block E building complex at the intersection of 8th Street and Main Avenue directly across from the iconic Moorhead Dairy Queen. We will be joined by Usher’s House, Edward Jones Financial Advisors, Eventide Corporate Headquarters, and a Herbalife Nutrition Club.
As a multipurpose building, Epic Companies is pre-leasing 12 residential units on floors three and four just above the commercial space in Block E.
“We are so fortunate to have Choice Bank choose Block E as their first location in Moorhead. They fit into our vision of developing the downtown area in our community, and we look forward to seeing the continued partnership as their space evolves and opens in 2019,” says McKenzy Olson, Marketing Director, Epic Companies.
Mayor of the City of Moorhead, Del Rae Williams, also comments, “We welcome Choice Bank to downtown Moorhead and are pleased they will become part of Moorhead’s growing business base! It’s really exciting to see the Block E Building on Main nearly complete, allowing a variety of services and housing to move to our downtown and creating momentum that is good for the whole community.”
“We are very excited to be able to serve Moorhead and surrounding communities. We’re looking forward to the opportunity to better serve our existing customers and get to know this wonderful community one person, one business at a time,” says Steve Jesme, who will serve as Location President for the Moorhead location.
As a community bank with over 20 locations spread across North Dakota and Minnesota, we have made it a priority to commit to improving the communities we serve. Partnered with Downtown Moorhead Inc., Choice shares the same vision of growing and strengthening the downtown Moorhead community. As part of that initiative, the new location will be a full-service bank that will offer additional services from their Home Loans, Insurance, and Wealth Management divisions.
“The fact that another established financial institution such as Choice Bank wants to have a presence in downtown Moorhead speaks to the growing reputation of Moorhead as a place people want to do business,” says Sheri Larson, Executive Director, Moorhead Business Association.
