Pedlar Banking Center celebrates grand opening in Holyoke

Hampden County

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – A grand opening for the new Pedlar Banking Center took place in Holyoke Saturday.

The city celebrated the opening of the new PeoplesBank with plenty of family-friendly activities like face painting, raffles, and a tour of the renovated building.

One longtime resident told 22News, he grew up near the old Yankee Pedlar building, and is happy to see it revitalized.

“This is fantastic, I kind of thought I’d be upset with the Yankee Pedlar going in the landmark and everything, but they’ve done just a wonderful job of preserving the historical aspect of this area.”

Local favorites like the Log Cabin and Summit View provided free food for the event.
