History of TD Bank US Holding Company

This bank had its beginnings in 1852 in Portland, Maine, as the Portland Savings Bank. It merged with several other banks and was Peoples Heritage Bank by 1983. Taking the name of Banknorth after acquiring more New England banks, it centered most of its acquisitions and mergers in states along the Atlantic Coast. TD Bank Group acquired enough shares in Banknorth to become the major shareholder, changed the name to TD Banknorth and later purchased it. The purchases of TD Banknorth and Commerce Bank were completed early in 2008. Their service area encompassed the Carolinas and Florida when TD Bank Group acquired The South Financial Group, Inc. late in 2010. In June of 2011, all branches became known as the TD Bank US Holding Company.

Corporate Philosophy and Customer Advantages

One of the important reasons the bank is attractive to customers is the number of branches it maintains with most of its varied services available at each branch. It presently has 1313 branches on the East Coast making it easily accessible.

The bank also offers evening, Sunday and holiday hours. This is attractive to people working regular daytime shifts with weekends and holidays free.

Having free checking with a low $100 daily balance is also very attractive. Free money orders and bank checks for customers who are 60 or older is another big draw for certain customers.
