January 24, 2019

UNIONDALE, N.Y., Jan. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flushing Financial Corporation (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: FFIC), the parent holding company for Flushing Bank (the “Bank”), announced that the Bank hosted a Grand Opening Reception yesterday at the Canton Lounge in Chinatown to celebrate its new location at 183 Canal Street, New York, NY.

John R. Buran, President and CEO of Flushing Bank, stated: “Our Grand Opening reception was well attended by community leaders, real estate developers, business owners, and professionals from the Chinatown market. We have a long-standing relationship with the Asian community and this Chinatown location is a natural extension of our business footprint. Over the years, we have supported numerous local community, cultural, and charitable organizations through financial sponsorships and employee participation. To demonstrate our commitment to this community, we presented a check to the Chinatown Partnership at our reception. As a community bank, we believe it is important to staff our branches with employees who reflect and understand the culture and speak the language of its residents. Our employees speak over 20 languages with Cantonese and Mandarin being prevalent in the Chinese markets we serve. This full-service branch features our customer-centric Universal Banker model with Assisted Service Kiosk (ASK) and Video Banker services. This highly-efficient model gives customers the flexibility to choose a self-service option for everyday transactions or to interact with a Universal Banker for more complex financial transactions or problem resolution. Our Video Banker service extends the engagement by connecting customers, face-to-face, with bankers through a video-chat platform from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.”
