FIRST NIAGARA PLANS BRANCH NEAR ROCHESTER

First Niagara Financial Group, parent of First Niagara Bank, is applying to regulators to open a branch in Greece, N.Y., outside Rochester, its eighth office in Monroe County.

It also has a branch opening this summer in Perinton, and is awaiting approvals for offices in Lewiston, West Seneca and Clarence in Erie County, also planned for summer.

First Niagara plans to open 12 branches in Erie and Niagara counties in 2005 and 2006.
