Wells Fargo Opens First Retail Banking Store in Denville


DENVILLE, NJ-- Wells Fargo celebrated the grand opening of a new community banking store near the ACME Market center at 123 E. Main Street.  This marks the first time the company has opened a new retail store in Denville since the bank purchased Wachovia in 2009.  More than 30 local residents, Wells Fargo bankers, and community leaders from Joey Bella Memorial Fund and Denville Chamber of Commerce gathered in front of the new, close to 3,300 square foot store, to celebrate the occasion. Denville Mayor Thomas Andes, who was among the attendees, congratulated Wells Fargo and helped officiate the ribbon cutting ceremony.

“Denville [Township] has seen an increase in its total population over the past 10 years,” explained AZ Abdulghani, Community Banking area president for Wells Fargo’s Suburban North Jersey market. “There was a gap in our distribution network and many of our customers reside in Denville. We are thrilled that after many years of planning, we are finally open for business in Denville. Furthermore, we are better positioned to assist local residents and businesses with products and services which will help them to succeed financially.”

In addition to parking, the eco-friendly store employs five bankers -- led by Store Manager Brian Lattari - and has an online banking station and two walk up ATM. The store features a mural depicting important sites and events throughout the 103-year history of Denville Township.

As part of the historic celebration, Lattari, along with Wells Fargo Suburban North Jersey – Northwest Market District Manager Lisa Orefice presented a $10,000 Foundation grant award to the Joey Bella Memorial Fund. Joey Bella Memorial Fund, formerly known as the Joey Bella Foundation, is a 25-year-old non-profit organization. Its mission is to aid Morris County, N.J. families and children dealing with life-threatening illnesses.  The event also included family-friendly activities such as face painting, giveaways, complimentary financial review, and food.
