Advance Bank/Interflora/For Lease – Kingsgrove, NSW

The Advance Bank brand lasted only ten years, from 1985-1995, at which point it was rebranded the Bank of South Australia. This fascinating tidbit aside, we can see that after the Advance Bank went south (haw haw), the shop became an Interflora florist, but above all this post exists to prove that not every shop in Kingsgrove has ‘King’ in their name.

  1. Advance Bank grew out of the old NSW Permanent Building Society, which along with St George, was one of the big two Mutual Building Societies of the 1970s. Ironically, NSW Permanent / Advance Bank was later taken over by St George Bank, which also grew out of St George Permanent Building Society, and ultimately became part of Westpac (Bank of NSW).
