Citicorp plans to raise its profile with entrepreneurs by offering its products in Kinko's office service outlets.
Representatives of the banking company will open accounts and tout services like PC banking and remote bill paying. The sites will also feature Citicorp ATMs.
For Citicorp, the alliance represents an opportunity to widen the access channels for its retail financial services. Kinko's tends to attract small- business executives and those comfortable with computers and technology.
Citicorp will put video screens, personal computers, and printed materials at the Kinko's sites. The program will initially operate in six to eight stores, then expand to other Kinko's locations.
