Greater Buffalo Savings Bank has received state regulatory approval to open two Amherst branches, one at 2715 Niagara Falls Blvd. and the other at 315 Stahl Road.
The branches are scheduled to open in March or April, part of the thrift's continued aggressive expansion. Another branch, at Transit and Klein roads, is slated to open by the end of this year, while an office on Buffalo's West Side, at 364 Connecticut St., is being planned for early 2006.
The bank continues to look at Lakewood, Orchard Park, Lancaster, Hamburg, Niagara Falls, Lockport and Wheatfield for other possible sites.
