Location features experiential design and community spaces to create unique customer experience

Umpqua Bank, a subsidiary of Umpqua Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ:UMPQ), opens its newest store today in Spokane, Wash., in the heart of the city's downtown retail and business center. Umpqua pioneered its nationally and internationally recognized bank store model more than 20 years ago and continues to use physical and digital tools in new ways to advance its signature customer experience.

"Umpqua's approach to banking is decidedly different. We believe it should be an approachable, enjoyable experience that reflects how important our finances are in our daily lives and our Spokane store is no exception," said Brian Read, Umpqua Bank EVP Retail Banking.

The store is designed to serve as a gathering place for customers, neighboring businesses and local organizations. It's outfitted with three conference meeting rooms available for anyone in the community to reserve and use free of charge, Wi-Fi, Umpqua blend coffee and a lounge area.

Umpqua is also showcasing its Local Spotlight program at the new store. The program, which demonstrates the company's commitment to small businesses by selling products from local companies each quarter, kicks off with Spokane-based Boo Radley's gift shop.

The new downtown Spokane store will replace the former store on Wall Street. The new store is located at 707 W. Main Avenue and will be open Monday through Friday 9:00am to 5:00pm, with 24 hour ATM and night drop-off. For more information visit
