JAMESTOWN – The Northwest Arena had an official ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday to officially recognize the new name of the facility.
Since first being built and completed in 2002, the arena has been known as the Jamestown Savings Bank Ice Arena. But the parent company of the bank – Northwest Bank – had recently made the decision to rebrand all local banks as Northwest Bank, dropping the “Jamestown Savings” title. As a result, the ice arena also had to drop the name and go with Northwest.
Signs with the new name have already been on the outside of the building since last month.
