A week ago, that the Citizens Bank branches in Long Island Stop & Shop locations would be converted to People's United by month's end.
Now we have the signage to prove it.
In the last week, People's began the not-so-behind-the-scenes work of swapping out Citizens green with People's blue and red.
At the Deer Park Stop & Shop location, the People's sign is already set up, thinly covered by a Citizens banner.
People's cracked the Long Island market when it for $60 million in 2010. That acquisition gave People's 29 branches in the Nassau-Suffolk market. It has now grown to 33 locations here, which includes the on Jericho Turnpike.
People's is also no stranger to supermarket banking. It already operates 87 Stop & Shop branches in Connecticut, where it has had supermarket branches since 1995.
People's already has branches on in Northport and in East Northport, so the Stop & Shop branch will be the latest of several in the area.
