The new-look Delphi Bank branch has reopened in Oakleigh with the introduction of a café hub near the entrance that is aimed at making the banking experience for clients more welcoming and inclusive.
The new look sought to be welcoming to all and was particularly aimed at the newer generations who preferred their banking to be less transactional. It features a of a dining table, an open kitchen with a long island bench with banquet seating.
The branch opened as the Bank of Cyprus in 2000, subsequently came under of the Delphi bank. At the time it was the first retail bank of a Hellenic background to open its doors in Australia.
The General Manager, Bendigo Specialised Banking and Delphi Bank, Jim Sarris, said at the reopening that the Oakleigh branch was: “our flagship branch situated in the hub of the Greek Australian community – and whilst our fresh new take on our branch might have us looking a little different, we’re still a fully functional bank branch, that allows us to continue to support our community in new and different ways”.
“The new design concept fully embraces our multicultural roots, and those of our customers and community,” said Mr Sarris.
