Key Bank opens full service ATM in Phoenicia

in

By Jay Braman Jr.
With a full reopening of the burned-out Key Bank still nowhere in sight, the company has at least built a new, full service, ATM location out in front of the branch on Phoenicia’s Main Street location, which became operational last week.
For many, this is a godsend, as they can now not only access their cash, but also make deposits to their accounts.
Folks that have never used such a device should feel at ease. Operation is amazingly simple, with steps being laid out in plain English every simple step of the way.
