TD Bank is expected to open a retail branch on the corner of 41st Street and Queens Blvd in November, according to several Sunnyside sources.

The bank is expected to hold an elaborate grand opening at the time and has already committed to sponsor several local events, according to business leaders. Representatives of the bank did not return calls.

The bank takes over the space that had been occupied by Moon Candy & Grocery and a veterans’ outpatient clinic. Both closed in Sept. 2011 to make way for the bank.

The veterans outpatient clinic moved to 47-01 Queens Boulevard (3rd floor) in Sunnyside, days after it closed.

TD bank is actually a Canadian bank and did not recieve TARP or bail out funding at all. Canadian banks have actually tighter regulations then their courterparts in the U.S. which is why the Canadian economy has not been as affected by the financial downturn.

Angray, perhaps you haven’t watched the news in the last 4 years but banks have been sucking money out of hardworking people with their accomplices in DC. They call it bail outs, TARP and other fancy terms so I guess it’s ok.

I see this as a good sign. They would not open banks if there weren’t money to go into them…

So open up your own place if you want what you want.

Someone wants to open up a bank let it be.

Just what this neighborhood needs. ANOTHER bank. 3 banks in 6 blocks. Forget about something that this neighborhood actually needs, maybe a Day care for all the kids in this over populated neighborhood, Maybe another fresh produce market or how about a legit breakfast spot instead of a dunkin donuts or some over priced diner. another bank..what a joke

It won’t lend any individuality or character to the neighborhood – just more bland, corporate uniformity, but I suppose it’s better than an empty storefront.

Another bank, but another bank that actually has normal operating hours. They’re even open on Sundays!
