The $441 million People’s Trust Federal Credit Union has begun work on a new coinless, no teller-line branch that will replace an older facility on Houston’s west side with more personalized service, the 37,000-member Texas credit union said.
The 5,682-square-foot building is expected to be completed in December and staff will be moved there from People’s Trust current Town and Country branch, which it is replacing, the credit union said.
The branch is the third designed for People’s Trust by LEVEL5 of Atlanta and, in addition to pods for staff to use to conduct their credit union business, also will include a community rooms, drive-through and change counter free to members.
“We have a large percentage of our membership that live on the west side of town and we look forward to expanding our presence and being able to serve our member’s financial needs,” said Angela McCathran, president/CEO of the 85-employee, five-branch People’s Trust.
