Entrance, exit get updates at Chemical Bank

BIG RAPIDS — The downtown Big Rapids Chemical Bank location is undergoing a facelift.

The branch, located at 125 N. Michigan Ave., needed better accommodations at its two entrances. The building’s age played into the decision for renovations and there were some updates to do, Branch Manager Lisa Szynkowski said.

“We’re making the back entrance handicap accessible,” she said. “Right now, we have that through the front entrance but we don’t have the push buttons where the doors swing open automatically. They’re going to be building a ramp back there.”

The business will not to have the double foyer doors anymore. It’s expected to be done by Oct. 16.

“The updates are necessary just because of the age of the building and of course the accessibility to customers,” she said.
