TD Bank vacated Bates Mill No. 7, foreground, in 2020 and reduced its footprint at Mill No. 3. Andree Kehn/Sun Journal

TD Bank is among employers nationally and locally who are embracing a hybrid approach to office life nearly two years after abandoning them during the height of COVID-19. That means, you could see more TD employees back at work and in downtown Lewiston in the coming weeks and months.

A company spokeswoman confirms the company is using a variety of working models for TD Bank employees in Maine based on their job type and customer needs. In a statement, TD Bank said the models apply to Bates Mill and Lewiston, including the 790 Lisbon St. office, where workers have remained on-site throughout the pandemic. In September 2020, TD announced that roughly 1,000 employees and contractors working at Bates Mill would work remotely.

TD Bank relinquished its lease at Bates Mill No. 7 and reduced its footprint at Mill No. 3. The spokeswoman said it cannot reveal the number of employees working at any one office or campus, citing safety reasons.

She did say the employees who work a primarily remote or hybrid schedule also will periodically attend on-campus events. She said TD Bank is committed to the Lewiston community and they look forward to seeing more of their customers, colleagues and community members in the coming months.
