After opening the new customer service division in “Ozas” shopping centre in Vilnius on 19th December this year, Bank SNORAS opened the first branch outlet in Raseiniai.
“At the moment we are, most probably, the only bank in Lithuania, which not only does not leave smaller towns without the banking services but also expands its customer service network and the spectrum of its services. For quite a long time already we have had the most expansive territorial customer service network of the bank in Lithuania, which, taking into consideration the needs of the residents and companies, we intend to further expand. Therefore, next year will also optimize the present network in such a way that we would be maximally needful and close to the client; we will create new subdivisions and will strengthen the bank’s positions both in the major cities and in the regions,” states Žoržas Šarafanovičius, the deputy chairman of AB Bank SNORAS Board, the director of the Retail Business Division.
