US Bank has opened its new downtown branch one block south of the old location at 1145 Commerce Street.

The new location is in the US. Bank Tacoma Financial Center—housing US Bank Corporate, Business, International, and Private banking offices.

According to Kim Thompson, retail market manager for US Bank, the old US Bank home—the six-story, 24,000 square-foot Commerce Street Building—is up for sale, forcing the bank to move.

Branch and office staff, as well as services offered at the new location will remain the same. Branch banking hours will remain 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Customer accounts and safe deposit boxes were automatically transferred and all account numbers, checks and load coupons will remain the same.
