Columbus-based Huntington Bank today announced it plans to open 43 full-service branches in Meijer stores across Michigan, adding more than 250 jobs to the financial institution.
“Our in-store branches are unique in that they are not just access points but full-service banking locations with extended hours, seven days a week,” says Mike Fezzey, Troy-based president of Huntington’s East Michigan region. “As such, we will be hiring highly capable bankers to service our customers’ needs.”
Many of Huntington Bank’s new locations will be in the Meijer store’s around the metro Detroit, including Allen Park, Auburn Hills, Canton Township, Clinton Township, Detroit, Fraser, Madison Heights, Rochester Hills, Southgate, Sterling Heights, and Warren, among others.
The in-store branches will offer services such as mortgages, consumer and business loans, and credit cards. Each location will also have a 24-hour access ATM that customers can access outside of Meijer’s hours. The new branches are expected to open this year.
Huntington’s expansion in Michigan will give the state more than 220 Huntington branches and rank the bank No. 3 in branches up from No. 5 in the state, according to Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. data.
Last month, Huntington announced it acquired Bloomfield Hills-based Macquarie Equipment Finance for about $900 million in assets.
