HomeStar Celebrates Bradley Branch Remodel With Ribbon Cutting

HomeStar Bank & Financial Services’ Bradley Branch located at 435 E. North Street has had a makeover.
The facility was thoroughly remodeled, receiving a new exterior facade, additional lighting and new landscaping. The parking lot walkway was also updated to increase safety for customers.  Johnson Downs Construction Company Inc. was the general contractor on the project. 
HomeStar employees, representatives from the Kankakee County Chamber of Commerce and community leaders celebrated the remodel with a ribbon cutting on Tuesday, November 6th.
Danielle Walters, VP of Retail Banking at HomeStar commented, “We have been thrilled to welcome new customers and our loyal returning customers to our redesigned building. We feel strongly about the personal connection between our customers and employees which is why it is important to us that our office be warm and welcoming.”
Prior to the ribbon cutting ceremony HomeStar employees met with members of the Kankakee County Chamber. During that time Chamber members spoke about their appreciation for HomeStar’s dedication and longstanding support of Bradley and other communities in Kankakee County.
Bruce Adams, Mayor of the Village of Bradley said, “The Village of Bradley is a long-time customer at HomeStar and we wouldn’t be here if we didn’t have a great deal of faith and trust with the leadership and the way the bank functions day-after-day. We’re very happy that HomeStar has chosen to remodel this facility, it is beautiful!”
HomeStar President and Chief Administrative Officer, Pat Martin spoke about the importance for businesses to put money back into their buildings.
“It’s important to HomeStar that we reinvest in our facilities so our customers have a good experience,” he said. Martin continued, “Our success is only possible due to the people that support us. We are truly thankful for each one of our customers that bank with us in Bradley and our other locations. We hope to take good care of our customers for many more years to come at this building.”
