Commonwealth Bank has today opened a new branch in the NSW town of Lismore after the original site was inundated by catastrophic flooding in early 2022. The new branch marks the completion of a $2 million investment into Lismore this year, with a temporary pop-up branch operating in the town while the branch’s new permanent home in Lismore Square was constructed.
The new branch reflects CBA’s commitment to Lismore and to regional Australia, and demonstrates the Bank’s ongoing priority to maintain the largest branch network across the country.
Stephanie Darragh, CBA Lismore Branch Manager said: “Like so many homes and businesses, our branch was submerged by the East Coast floods this year. It has been the most trying and overwhelming period for so many people in our community, so our focus has been to always be there for Lismore, both in the immediate aftermath and while the town rebuilds.”
Shortly after the 2022 floods swept through Lismore, CBA deployed its mobile pop-up branch to the town and the branch team have been providing full face-to-face banking support to Lismore customers via the temporary branch on university grounds since then.
