Another Bank Coming to Centre Street: TD Bank to Open Branch

Another bank is opening on Centre Street. Currently, TD Bank is building out the space at 725-737 Centre St., according to a building permit posted on the wooden boards covering up the space. The alteration permit says it's to "erect, alter, substantially repair, move, demolish or change occupancy" at the location and states its being done by the tenant for "a new TD Bank" branch. The last bank to take up residence on Centre Street, Chase Bank, is only mere feet away from where the new TD Bank will stand. TD Bank will be the sixth bank within 200 yards of that section of Centre Street.

Packaging everything from toothbrushes to soap, Bank of America employees formed a thorough assembly line alongside Bridge Over Troubled Waters team leaders, and worked tirelessly to get bags packed, ready, and on their way. Boston-based Bridge Over Troubled Waters is dedicated to transforming the lives of runaway, homeless, and high-risk youth through safe, supportive, and encouraging relationships and effective and innovative services that guide them toward self-sufficiency.
