This is the first credit union co-location initiative in Atlantic Canada!
ANTIGONISH, NS, Sept. 4, 2018 /CNW/ - Provincial Government Employees Credit Union and East Coast Credit Union will celebrate the grand opening of Atlantic Canada's first shared credit union branch on Thursday, September 6, 2018, at 1718 Argyle Street in Halifax. The festivities are set to begin with an official ribbon-cutting at 9:30AM and continue throughout the day.
The new, modern branch is designed with a specific focus on enhancing the member experience. A comfortable and welcoming open concept environment has been created that encourages financial discussions, interaction, and community engagement. Centrally located in Halifax's busy financial district, it provides both credit unions a more significant presence in the downtown core.
"The move to Argyle St. allows us to address a number of our members' needs, including ample parking and an on-site ATM. The same great staff will continue to provide competitive financial products and services to our members, but in a more member-centric space" says Provincial Government Employees Credit Union's CEO, Ingrid Foshay-Murphy.
Construction of this first of its kind branch in Atlantic Canada began in February 2018 with the doors opening for business in June.
"This initiative is an exciting opportunity to conveniently serve our members in downtown Halifax where East Coast Credit Union previously didn't have a presence. This is co-operation among co-operatives in the truest sense. We're looking forward to continuing to meet our members' banking needs and welcoming new members at the Argyle Street location" says East Coast Credit Union's CEO Ken Shea.
Join the credit unions as they celebrate on September 6th and enjoy light refreshments and a chance to win some cool prizes! Provincial Government Employees Credit Union and East Coast Credit Union are looking forward to helping all members, current and future, achieve their financial goals.
