Rancho San Diego

February 21, 2009 (Rancho San Diego) — Champagne, refreshments and visits
with firefighters welcomed visitors at the grand opening of Bank America's
new branch office at 2930 Jamacha Road in Rancho San Diego today.

"We started in a little tiny storefront in Albertsons," recalled Mimi Esshaki,
branch manager.  "I grew up here and watched this area grow.  We're
very excited to have this traditional banking center here."
At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Rancho San Diego-Jamul Chamber of Commerce
president Valerie Harrison presented a plaque to the newest member of the local
business community.  "Businesses are slowing down all over, but we're
growing here in Rancho San Diego," Harrison said.

Rancho San Diego Chamber," she said. 

Bank America is offering a $100 bonus for customers who open a new checking
account at the Rancho San Diego branch.  Each time a purchase is made
using a Bank America check card,  the bank will round up to the nearest
dollar and let customers "keep the change," which is transferred from the client's
checking to savings account.
