HOB_Bancorp_LogoHeritage Oaks Bank, the wholly-owned bank subsidiary of Heritage Oaks Bancorp (Nasdaq: HEOP), announced the opening of the bank’s relocated downtown San Luis Obispo branch at 1144 Morro St. as of July 14, 2014. The branch was previously located at 1135 Santa Rosa St.

“We’re so pleased to be moving into this new location,” said Simone Lagomarsino, president and CEO of Heritage Oaks Bank and Heritage Oaks Bancorp. “When Union Bank’s previous downtown office at the corner of Marsh and Morro became available, we took immediate action and invested in remodeling the branch.  This office’s central location and amenities are far superior to our previous location and allows us to better serve our local customers. We are also very pleased that our manager, Terry Detrick, and the same team will remain. We know the staff and customers will enjoy this new office.”

The new location is easily accessible in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo and offers a night depository and two full-service ATM’s in addition to a conference room that is available for local non-profit organizations to use. The new branch will continue to offer a complete range of financial services including deposit services, consumer and commercial lending, agribusiness services, residential and commercial real estate loans, SBA financing, and cash management services.

“We are very excited to welcome our customers to this beautiful new office,” said Terry Detrick, vice president and San Luis Obispo branch manager. “In addition to the larger lobby area and the two new ATM’s, we also have a large conference room that local non-profit community organizations can use for their meetings.  Our entire team is looking forward to being even more accessible and to increasing our relationships here in San Luis Obispo. We invite community members to come in and see our new branch.”
