Scotiabank expands Quebec ABM network into Couche-Tard stores
MONTREAL--Scotiabank has expanded its ABM network with the addition of select Couche-Tard stores across Quebec, effective September 3, 2013. This expansion of 287 Scotiabank-branded ABMs will boost the Bank's ABM network in Quebec to 444.
The ABM access for Scotiabank cardholders at various Quebec locations of Couche-Tard, a Quebec - founded convenience store chain, is made possible by a partnership with STANLEY Security, a global provider of security products and services with a specialty in financial solutions, which is delivering comprehensive monitoring and management of the ABM networks. In addition to making cash withdrawals, customers using Scotiabank ABMs at Couche-Tard locations will also benefit from the same strong security measures that are built into all Scotiabank ABMs with the added convenience of the increased access.
• The new ABMs offer customers a convenient way to access their money in multiple Couche-Tard locations in Quebec. Some of the ABMs will be in stores that are open 24 hours. The ABMs offer cash withdrawals only.
• The addition of 287 Scotiabank ABM's in select Couche-Tard locations expands Scotiabank's overall ABM network in Canada to 3,812, an increase of 8%.
