Santander's new Brooklyn branches feature a modern interior design aimed at improving the customer experience with an open layout and comfortable meeting "nooks" with sliding glass doors where customers can meet privately with our bankers to discuss their financial needs. The branches also have a "help bar" that provides a casual gathering area for waiting and quick conversations. A 24-hour zone with deposit-taking ATMs is also available at both branches for customer use after bank hours.
The branch managers and their teams are available Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to assist existing customers as well as those who would like to learn more about Santander's products and services.
