CHICAGO, May 03, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- U.S. Bank is holding a grand opening celebration through
May 6 of its new, full-service office in the Crain's Communication
building at 360 North Michigan Avenue. This U.S. Bank River branch has
relocated from its former location in the Wrigley Building. Light
refreshments will be served during the week-long celebration and all
who open a new checking account will receive two tickets to Ravinia,
an outdoor summer concert venue in the northern suburbs of Highland
Park. In addition, a drawing will be held for a chance to win a
two-night stay at the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown Chicago with a gift
certificate to the China Grill restaurant in the hotel. Entrants do
not need to be a new or existing U.S. Bank customer.
Denise Zajac, U.S. Bank Chicago district manager said, "We are
really excited to be opening this street-level branch that includes a
Michigan Avenue vestibule with a Super ATM that sells postage stamps
and phone cards in addition to handling banking transactions."
The U.S. Bank Crain's office will be managed by Alejandro Abraham.
At the new branch, customers can open checking accounts with free
Internet bill pay, and conveniently transact business on savings, CDs,
IRAs and other investment opportunities, or get a loan for a car,
boat, home improvement or debt consolidation. Zajac said that
customers who take advantage of U.S. Bank products and services can
also take comfort in knowing that U.S. Bank is home of the exclusive
Five Star Service Guarantee, meaning business will be efficient and
accurate or the bank will pay customers $5.
The hours of the new U.S. Bank office are Monday through Friday
from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Customers also have access to services
24-hours a day through ATM, telephone or Internet banking.

the Rookery Building at 209 S. LaSalle, where it moved its regional
headquarters last October. It has a total of 52 retail locations
throughout the Chicago area, including seven branches located inside
