SUSUPE Saipan — Bank of Hawaii will relocate its Susupe Branch to the Town House Shopping Center adjacent to the Blockbuster video store on Aug. 1 in response to growing client needs in the area.

Stephen A. Brock district manager for Bank of Hawaii said “The layout of the new branch is designed to help facilitate service needs and transactions for our customers.” He said the investment by the bank in upgrading and moving the branch reaffirmed Bank of Hawaii’s commitment to Saipan. The new 2 500-square-foot branch similar in size to the Susupe facility was designed by Cliff Terry of TRB Architects with Jones & Guerrero Co. as contractors.

All the branch’s employees will relocate to the Chalan Kanoa branch. Bank of Hawaii has an additional branch in Garapan and seven additional ATMs in Saipan and began operations in Saipan in 1971. MBJ
