Company Release - 5/20/2004 11:49 AM ET

WAYZATA, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 20, 2004--Responding to consumers' growing demand for more convenience in a fast-paced world, TCF Bank and King Soopers will offer in-store banking at eight Denver-area King Soopers stores. Just like TCF's traditional banks, the full-service, in-store branches will be open seven days a week offering longer, more convenient operating hours.

"This relationship with King Soopers supports our overall Colorado growth strategy and allows us to offer our customers the added convenience of banking at their neighborhood King Soopers store," said Wayne Marty, president of TCF Bank Colorado. "Customers look for convenience in where, when and how they bank, and in-store banking addresses all of these needs. Everything our customers can do at our traditional branches, they can do at our King Soopers locations."

"At King Soopers we're always looking for ways to help our customers save time," said Trail Daugherty, consumer affairs director for King Soopers. "Teaming up with TCF to provide in-store banking is a great way to add even more value to their grocery shopping experience."

The addition of the eight King Soopers locations will help TCF meet the needs of a growing customer base and will complement the Bank's new branch expansion strategy in Colorado, which includes the opening of six more traditional branches in Denver and one in Colorado Springs through 2004.
