CIBC FirstCaribbean has announced its intention to relocate its San Pedro Branch operations
to Orange Walk Town.

To facilitate this move our San Pedro branch will close permanently to the public  on June 15, 2012.

In an official statement, Country Head, Glen Smith indicated that the current economic climate had necessitated a thorough review of the bank's operations, resulting in strategic decision to relocate to the Orange Walk District.

"We remain committed to our clients in San Pedro and we encourage them to continue to bank with us through a number of options, including our Visa Debit Card products; Internet and Telephone Banking; and by mailing in Cheque Deposits.  We are also exploring additional options for providing banking services to our clients in the area that will be advised to our clients as they are finalized."
