OXFORD, MASSACHUSETTS — bankHometown recently celebrated the opening of its newest branch location at 270 Grove Street, Worcester.

The full-service banking office marks bankHometown’s second Worcester location and joins 15 other branch locations throughout central Massachusetts and northeast Connecticut. The new branch will provide full-service banking to retail and business customers within 1,700 square feet of space that includes two private offices, a drive-up teller window, and a 24-hour drive-up ATM.

“This branch adds another opportunity for bankHometown to be part of the remarkable rebirth and revitalization of Worcester and reinforces our commitment to community banking in this city,” said bankHometown President and CEO Robert J. Morton. “We’re thrilled to add convenience for our existing Worcester customers and are excited to share our unique, community-focused brand of banking with the residents and small business owners of Worcester.”

During a virtual grand opening event held earlier today, Morton and bankHometown Board Chairman Steven H. Duvarney presented a check for $25,000 to Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Timothy P. Murray and Chairman Robert D. Cox, Jr. The donation fulfilled a challenge grant the bank announced in June to help the chamber sustain its programs and services in support of local businesses, including those negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Also during the event, Worcester Business Development Corporation President and CEO Craig L. Blais and Chairman Robert J. Hennigan, Jr., announced and presented a $25,000 matching grant to the Chamber.

Joel Laureano has been named branch officer of the Grove Street office. He previously was the branch manager of the bank’s other Worcester location at 1001 Millbury Street.

The Grove Street branch hours are Monday through Wednesday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Thursday and Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:30 a.m. to Noon. The drive-up window is open 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to Noon on Saturday.
