Many Queen Anne residents and lucky passersby who wandered to the Upper Queen Anne Key Bank opening this afternoon were bought lunch on the bank.
For their grand opening celebration, the bank set up events outside their store and across the street in the Safeway parking lot, where they gave out $10 lunch vouchers to Hawaiian-Korean street vendor Marination Mobile, who was there exclusively for the event.
In front of the bank, at 2105 Queen Anne Ave. N., KUBE 93.3 and KJR 95.7 set up booths and were giving away bumper stickers and promotional prizes.
Inside the bank long lines of people enjoyed the Mariners Moose, while waiting to meet former Mariner Jay Buhner, who signed autographs to fans from 12 to 1 p.m.
The bank did all this as a promotion for their new branch on the top of the hill – a way of introducing themselves to the neighborhood.
“We’ve had a great turnout,” said Senior Relationship Manager and new Queen Anne resident Heather Cortez. “I’m down to my last bunch of tickets!”
