Now Open on 360 Londonderry Turnpike in Hooksett

Merrimack County Savings Bank (the Merrimack) has opened a new and modern branch office at the intersection of route 3 and the route 28 bypass on 360 Londonderry Turnpike, the Bank’s second office in Hooksett and 9th overall. The Merrimack’s Hooksett Welcome Center branch, which opened in 2015, is located on 530 West River Road and features entrances from both Route 3A and the I-93 North Welcome Center. Stephanie Andruss, Assistant Vice President, Branch and Business Development Manager, oversees both locations.

NH Banking Commissioner Jerry Little, NH Bankers’ Association President Christiana Thornton and Hooksett Town Administrator, Dean Shankle participated in the Bank’s official ribbon cutting ceremony on May 15.

To celebrate the grand opening, the Merrimack is offering “balloon-grab” giveaways, which correspond with various mystery prizes including cash, fun giveaways and gift cards to local businesses and restaurants. Visit the two Hooksett branches from Wednesday May 17th through Saturday, May 20th to participate, while supplies last.

Celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, the Merrimack’s success can be traced back to an unyielding commitment to improving the economic health and well-being of the communities it has impacted. Since its founding in 1867, the Merrimack has expanded from a single office location in Concord to nine branches in Bow, Concord, Contoocook, Hooksett and Nashua, though many customers also use the Bank’s extensive services including mobile device and internet banking, available 24 hours per day.

“We are extremely pleased with the results of the new branch, and invite our customers and friends to stop by and check it out! It is a state of the art facility that will serve customers and the community for many years to come,” said Philip Emma, Bank President.

The new Merrimack office offers a wide range of modern banking services to meet the needs of households, non-profits, municipal organizations and businesses in the area. The inviting new location, which is conveniently located on Route 3, combines modern clean lines and color with ease-of-use for customers. Lobby hours are Mondays through Wednesdays, 8:30 AM to 5 PM, Thursdays through Fridays 8:30 to 6 PM and Saturdays, 9 AM to 1 PM. Drive-up hours are Mondays through Wednesdays, 7:30 AM to 5 PM, Thursdays through Fridays 7:30 to 6 PM and Saturdays, 9 AM to 1 PM. The Merrimack’s Hooksett Welcome Center branch is open seven days a week, including Sundays. Customers can visit for full listing of all office locations, hours of operation and 24-hour ATMs.

“This is a wonderful milestone for Merrimack County Savings Bank,” said Linda Lorden, Senior Vice President, Retail Administration. “We’re excited to expand our footprint in Hooksett and meet the needs of our growing customer base.” Lorden also expressed the Merrimack’s continued commitment to providing outstanding customer service, which customers have grown to expect.

The Merrimack is celebrating its 150th year anniversary of serving the people, businesses, non-profits and municipalities of the greater Concord and Nashua regions since 1867. The Merrimack and its employees are guided and inspired by Merrimack style: living up to the values of accountability, mutuality, excellence, respect, integrity, teamwork and stewardship.
