Have you ever wondered what the WSFS in WSFS Bank stands for?
At the recent Ribbon Cutting & Grand Opening in the Milford Plaza Shopping Center, guests were informed that is stands for “We Stand For Service”, by Branch Manager Brian Warnock.
I remember back in the 70’s we’d call the bank Wis-fiss, though we knew back then it stood for Wilmington Savings Fund Society.
Their brand promise is “To exceed our customers’ expectations each time they interact with us by knowing our customers by name, quickly solving their problems being knowledgeable and friendly and understanding their individual needs”.
WSFS is on one the seventh oldest continuously operating financial institutions in the nation, and seven days older than the city of Wilmington, and their mission has been the same for all these years…to provide wonderful service, and strengthening our communities.
Syed Ahmed, Sr. VP & Southern Regional Manager says WSFS is happy to be in Milford, as many people have approached them over the years asking when a branch would open in our community. He says the community has been very receptive, and in turn WSFS has reached out to the community offering support in many areas already.
They are sponsors of the Downtown Milford, Inc. and Milford Public Library Movies and Music on the Riverwalk Weds. June 8th to Aug. 17th.
In coordination with their “It Pays to Go Green” promotion that runs through June 30, 2011, WSFS will be a vendor at the first ever chamber Green Mix-Po at Milford Central Academy.
