BETHESDA, Md., Oct. 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EagleBank, today, announced the opening of a new branch in the mixed-use development Mosaic District, in the Merrifield area of Fairfax County.

Murphy, EagleBank's President of Community Banking.  "EagleBank is proud to be part of the beautiful, new Mosaic District and eager to provide superior customer service, cutting-edge banking products and the kind of quick response and custom solutions that only a strong, local bank can offer," he concluded.

The new full-service branch, managed by an experienced team of relationship bankers, offers safe deposit boxes, an ATM, a night drop, and a full array of lending, cash management and online banking services for both business and retail customers. Lobby hours are Monday through Thursday, 8:30AM to 4:00PM, Friday, 8:30AM to 5:00PM and Saturday, 9:00AM to 12 Noon.
