Araratbank opens first sales mini-center

YEREVAN, February 5, /ARKA/. Armenian Araratbank has opened its first sales mini-center in downtown Yerevan, its executive director, board chairman Ashot Osipian, said today.

Speaking at a news conference he said opening of mini-centers is part of the bank’s strategy designed to expand its network of branches within the capital city Yerevan and beyond it.

‘Our goal is to make retail banking service more accessible to our customers. This will allow them to make use of them without having to visit our branches,’ he said. The citizens can visit mini-centers to make money transfers, pay their utility fees, run their bank accounts and so on.

Araratbank, previously called Haykap Bank, was founded in 1991 and provides a full range of banking services to corporate, MSME and retail customers. The bank has established a reputation as a small but reliable and dynamically growing financial institution.
