Chase bank to celebrate Chinatown opening with lion dance

JPMorgan Chase has opened a multilingual Chase bank in Las Vegas’ Chinatown area.

The doors opened today for the bank branch, Chase’s 35th in Southern Nevada, at 6001 Spring Mountain Road, just east of Jones Boulevard.

In addition to offering a wide range of financial services, the branch will have self-service kiosks that offer the services of a traditional ATM, plus new options including bill-pay and cash withdrawal in denominations from $1 to $100.

The branch also will be able to immediately issue working debit cards for customers opening new accounts or replacement cards.

The branch will be staffed with 11 employees, including workers fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, Tagalog and Spanish.

“In an era when many banks are cutting their branch network, JPMorgan Chase is expanding and redefining the branch experience,” Jose Basilio, district manager for Chase Consumer and Business Banking, said in a release announcing the opening.

In the bank’s 13-year history in Southern Nevada, it has grown to serve 286,000 customers, employing 475 local residents.

A grand opening ceremony at 8:30 a.m. Saturday will include a Chinese lion dance performance.
