Bank of Hawaii Celebrates First Hawaii Island ‘Branch of Tomorrow’

Grand Opening for New Safeway Niumalu Marketplace Branch


May 24th, 2021

Bank of Hawaii marked the opening of its new Safeway Niumalu Marketplace Branch with a traditional Hawaiian blessing by Kahu Danny Akaka on Monday, May 24 before the branch opened at 8 a.m.

Bank of Hawaii has been serving the Kona community for 99 years, since acquiring the First Bank of Hilo and opening the Kona Branch in December 1922. The new Safeway Niumalu Marketplace Branch, one of eight Bank of Hawaii branches on island, represents a continued commitment to the bank’s Branch of Tomorrow format, and is the first Branch of Tomorrow on Hawaii Island.

The new 433-square-foot Safeway Niumalu Marketplace Branch was designed and built with the same health and safety systems and precautions in place across our branch network to keep employees and customers safe throughout the pandemic and beyond. Temperature scanners, sneeze guards and signage to help customers physically distance is in place.

Safeway Niumalu Marketplace Branch features three teller stations and a platform desk that can accept transactions, each positioned to accommodate six-foot social distancing. There are two ATMs; one connected to the branch, and another located elsewhere within the Safeway store.

The new branch is open six days a week and offers banking services conveniently located in Niumalu Marketplace.
