Belco Community Credit Union, Harrisburg, Pa., held a ground breaking ceremony on the future site of the credit union’s new branch on Paxton Street, Harrisburg. About 20 professionals attended the ceremony, including Lonny Maurer, president/CEO of Belco Community Credit Union, who welcomed credit union and local officials to the site, where construction began in September. The new 3,290-square-foot facility was designed by Overton and Associates LLC to benefit credit union members as well as the local community. The new facility will replace an existing downtown Harrisburg branch on North Second Street. The new branch is scheduled to open late spring 2013 and will be located on the property of Belco’s Operations Center.
CorePlus Federal Credit Union, Norwich, Conn., said it plans to open two new locations in 2013. The full-service branches will be located inside the two Walmart Supercenter stores in northeastern Connecticut. The existing Walmart store on School Street is undergoing full refurbishment and transition into a Supercenter. The second location will be in the newly built Providence Pike Supercenter in Brooklyn, Conn.. It is anticipated that the stores will be ready by late fall 2013. Both store locations will provide CorePlus Credit Union with an opportunity to offer a full range of deposit and lending services, including “Loan Zone” consumer based loans, credit cards, home equity and mortgage products in a high traffic retail environment. Each location will offer an onsite ATM and nationwide shared branching services for members of participating credit unions.
