BOISE, Idaho -- West One Bank, the flagship Idaho affiliate of West One Bancorp, said it has signed an agreement to open full-service branches in up to five Albertson's supermarkets this year and up to 20 more in the next five years.

The first is to open June 22 in Boise; the second, in December in Meridian, Idaho.

West One Bancorp is emphasizing supermarket branches because construction takes 45 days and the costs are one-fifth those of a traditional branch, said Dan Nelson, chairman and chief executive officer.
