New chapter for Westpac and St.George at Orion

The Westpac and St.George bank branches at Orion Springfield Central have merged, with the new co-located shopfront opening at Shop 58, yesterday.

Open to the public from Tuesday, December 12, the space has been designed to facilitate banking services for both Westpac and St.George customers.

It includes improved video conferencing facilities to connect customers with banking experts across the country, upgraded digital amenities including iPad kiosks, and a dedicated concierge to help customers navigate the new site.

St.George became part of Westpac Group in 2008, so this unification has been long expected. The Orion Springfield Central co-located branch is the 92nd such branch in the country.

Westpac & St.George Queensland State General Manager Greg Crocombe said the investment demonstrates the company’s support of the future of Springfield.

“We’ve been here to support the growth of Springfield since 2007,” Mr Crocombe said.

“With the city’s population set to double by 2035 and increasing investment in local technology and medical industries, we’re excited to maintain a modern physical banking presence that caters to the needs of our customers now and in the future.”

Customers will continue to have access to all the same services they’re used to across both Westpac and St.George.

“I know our customers and our team are going to love this convenient new banking experience.”

Westpac Group customers have access to cash from nearly 7,000 ATMs around Australia, including 2,300 fee-free atmx and Precinct ATMs.

In addition, customers can also access banking services through Australia Post’s Bank@Post facilities which provides over-the-counter banking services at around 3,500 Bank@Post locations, including 1,800 in regional Australia.
