Bank of Hawaii held an official grand opening for its latest Kailua-Kona branch today at the Kona Commons Shopping Center. The new banking center had a soft opening two weeks ago on June 11.

The Kona Commons branch is the third Bank of Hawaii to have a photovoltaic system atop its roof. The other two Bank of Hawaii branches using solar power are on Oahu.
The new Bank of Hawaii branch will be open Monday -Thursday 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
