LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 17, 2012) - BMO Bank of Montreal today announced the opening of its new full-service banking branch in Lethbridge at 378 University Drive.

"BMO is excited to establish a new full-service branch in West Lethbridge," said Dave May, Branch Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal. "We encourage new and existing members of the community to come in and speak with our team about all of their financial needs. The new BMO AIR MILES bank plan allows customers to significantly enhance the value they are getting from their debit card by accelerating the rate of earning reward miles - and ultimately spend smarter."
