This mural will be a feature at the new Kenmore Wells Fargo and depicts things from the Northshore's history.

Construction is close to completion on a new Wells Fargo branch at Kenmore Safeway Shopping Center, 6830 NE Bothell Way. The branch is set to open on March 7.

Bank Manager Joshua Shore will lead about 10 Wells Fargo team members. The branch will provide financial services, including consumer and business banking, loans and lines of credit, financial investing, mortgages, and insurance services.

“Our new Kenmore banking store will complement Wells Fargo’s current locations along or near the Highway 522 corridor,” said Eric Stephens, Wells Fargo’s Eastside district manager. “The Kenmore area is growing and thriving. We see this new location as an investment in our customers, team members and the entire Puget Sound community. Great customer service starts with a comfortable banking environment for our customers to do their business.”

Kenmore has five teller windows, two envelope-free ATMs, safe deposit boxes, an historic mural highlighting the community’s unique history and a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver-certified design.

The mural design features early scenes of the community, including students at Kenmore’s first school, the logging industry, the McMaster Shingle Mill, and the Bothell stage. Historical maps and Wells Fargo documents are also featured in the design. Images for the mural were provided by the Kenmore Historical Society, the Museum of History and Industry, the Snohomish County Museum and Historical Association, and Wells Fargo Corporate Archives.

The new Kenmore Wells Fargo will be open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
