Hooray! Capital One Bank’s Sandy-rocked Sheepshead Bay branch reopened to the delight of customers and staff, who united for a rollicking ribbon-cutting earlier this month.
Capital was so badly damaged that it set up a makeshift bank in a trailer for more than a year, but Standing O is happy to report that it’s back in business.
“Our customers are happy we are back, and so are we,” said assistant manager Wilma Forde, a long-time employee. “We were all in the trailer and space was tight, but we did what we had to do.”
Staff led the Dec. 16 festivities, treating customers to food, contests, games, and prizes, including cups and tote bags bearing the Capital One logo.
