Newly remodeled, community-focused Bremer Bank branch now open for business in Fargo


Bremer Bank today announced the lobby opening of its newly remodeled, full-service Fargo branch. Located at 1444 45th St. S, the bright, updated space more effectively utilizes the branch’s 30,000 square feet. The building’s design prioritizes features that emote a collaborative and welcoming atmosphere.

“Bremer is a bank built on trust and relationships,” said Bremer President and CEO Jeanne Crain. “One of our favorite features of this new design is ensuring that our customers have comfortable, personalized experiences when they interact with us. We’re excited for the Fargo community to experience this innovative space that serves our customers in new and better ways.”

A staple in the Fargo community for nearly three decades, the remodeled branch currently employs 85 employees. Updates to the space include the replacement of traditional bank teller lines with open and accessible “partner tables” in the lobby for customer-banker collaboration; special technology features and updated monitors throughout the building; and an active, full-service community space for local organizations to borrow at no cost.

“This is not your grandparent’s bank,” said Judd Graham, Bremer’s North Dakota region president. “This newly remodeled, community-focused space represents Bremer’s collaborative, welcoming and people-centered way of doing business. We look forward to continue providing personalized, top-notch service to the people who will make this place home for many years to come.”

From the open workstations in the welcome plaza to the lobby Bremer bar offering local coffee, the Fargo Bremer Bank branch aims to be an active, comfortable space that meets all customers’ banking needs. A wide variety of Bremer employees will work at the branch, including those with expertise in business and agriculture banking, in addition to partners in mortgage, insurance and wealth management.

Current public health measures being taken at the branch to ensure the health and safety of all Bremer employees, customers, and visitors include plexiglass barriers at teller windows, social distance spacing stickers on the floors to help customers keep safe distances, and hand sanitizer and disposable face coverings available for all who enter.
