WAUSAU - AbbyBank opens new Wausau site today

AbbyBank opens its new location today at one of Wausau’s busiest and most visible intersections.

The new building is at 305 S. 18th Ave., the site of the former Annie’s American Cafe that was razed to make way for the bank.

The bank is the latest in several improvements that have occurred or are under way along Stewart Avenue between 17th and 18th avenues. The stretch of road was redesigned in recent years, and Walgreens opened in a new building at the corner of 17th and Stewart avenues in fall 2011.

Construction is ongoing for a Panera Bread restaurant slated to open next summer at 1700 Stewart Ave.

AbbyBank is based in Abbotsford and has locations in Wausau and Weston. The bank’s Wausau branch had been in the Union Station building on Stewart Avenue since 1998 but has now moved to the new building.
