Wonder if they will sell the building at 1 Conant Street?

They are going to sell 1 conant at some point. they dont need a main branch. I am soooo sad in in mourning STILL over the loss of Danvers Savings Bank. I had to make SIX calls yesterday because of a problem with my online bill pay. In the end the answer was-- "its a conversion problem, we dont know how it happened, we can't fix it"/ NICE ANSWER!!!! They will refund any overdrawn fees due to their error. That is nice! how 'bout we dont make me go overdrawn in the first place!!!!!! Im done. moving on! I only stayed as long as I did because of the people there. But now, it;s just too far gone and most of those people are now gone. So sad.

they mailed one of my checks with my account # to someone else. The response I got was "oh that happens sometimes". They deposited someone else's money market acct into my friend's account. And I've heard that's not the first time something like that has happened. I've called them and can't get the branch, only the call center and their reps were rude to me. I'm moving as fast as I can. I would be upset if they sold the main branch. That big building is part of the history of downtown and it would be a shame to see it sold and something more commercialized go in there.

...word on the street is it's going to be sold.

Hopefully the one that buys it will keep it as is. (and put Danvers Savings Bank back onn the clock!!!!!). People's wont need it. They dont need a main branch. So it will be sold. Let's buy it Dee!

The only interaction I had with DanversBank is when I used their ATMs to make deposits in the NYCE Shared Deposit network to my credit union, which doesn't have a local branch or ATM. Now that it's People's United, they've discontinued this service. I use Salem Five now to make these deposits.

They've removed the local phone number, replaced it with the 1-800-you'll never get a human. Removed the beautiful portraits from behind the counter at the main branch, replaced with advertisements for checking accounts; and changed the clock, which I knew was coming-but was still a shock to see. Thanks, Kevin-hope you're enjoying your millions.
