Parma welcomes Chase Bank to The Shoppes at Parma

March 19, 2014 by  

The first new building at The Shoppes at Parma opened Monday, when Chase Bank moved into an outlying, free-standing building at the new center.

Chase held a ceremony, complete with a ribbon cutting, to kick off an open house. Visitors were welcome to come to the bank to tour the new branch and learn about the services it offers.

A number of city officials were on hand for the opening, including Tim DeGeeter, Parma’s mayor. He joined Chase officials Jim Beuther, Christine Kelly, Robin Mau and Teanna Pollard for the occasion. Pollard will manage this Chase facility. Pollard said Chase was happy to be open and is looking forward to serving customers in the new Parma location.

DeGeeter said it was a “momentous occasion” to be part of the opening of the first building at the new center, and noted that Parma residents were feeling great anticipation as they watched the new buildings come to life.

Others on hand for the fun were Scott Tuma, Tom Mastroianni, Marty Vittardi and other officials. Also present was Roy Williams, who is with Phillips-Edison, a company that is working to redevelop the Parmatown Mall, which was an older center.

Since the bank’s location is new, it could work with stationery printers to create an accurate letterhead for its future correspondence.
