About Us

Letter from the President and CEO:

What makes a “community bank” an ideal solution for your personal and business financial management needs?
At Lake Shore Savings, we have been focused on our Chautauqua and Erie County neighborhoods for more than 130 years. From helping first-time home buyers plan for and purchase their dream home to assisting business owners with securing the capital they need to successfully grow their business – Lake Shore Savings has been dedicated to serving the best interests of our Western New York communities for well over a century, with no plans of that ever changing.

Lake Shore Savings is a true “local” bank. Our employees live and work throughout the vibrant neighborhoods of Western New York. They are woven into the fiber of what makes this area so unique, and are true ambassadors of this place we call home. From the picturesque towns of Chautauqua County, to the booming development taking place in Buffalo and its surrounding communities, our Lake Shore Savings team knows this area. They understand what makes our region so special, and are ready to offer a truly individualized approach to banking.

Lake Shore Savings remains dedicated to providing the innovative products, services and individualized support that are crucial to thriving in an extremely competitive market. Lake Shore Savings attributes its continued solid growth in part to investments in technology, allowing our “connected consumers” to bank however, wherever and whenever they choose. With the recent introduction of products and services such as self-service debit card security controls, enhanced mobile capabilities including mobile check deposit for consumer and business customers, and a benefits app that provides non-traditional banking services for consumer checking customers, Lake Shore Savings remains dedicated to increasing customer conveniences both online and in branch.

Having the advantage of exclusively serving the Western New York region for as long as we have has uniquely positioned Lake Shore Savings to continually meet and exceed residential and commercial customers’ expectations. We pride ourselves on being “connected” throughout the communities we serve, whether online or in branch. As a locally headquartered financial institution, Lake Shore Savings is committed to offering a variety of products and services designed to support the individualized needs of the clients we serve, delivered by a team of experts who share a common vision and desire to help our customers achieve their financial goals. Banking with your best interest in mind – it’s how we do business.
