Winston-Salem, NC, November 14, 2008 - Members Credit Union will celebrate the grand opening of its new Kernersville branch on Friday, November 21. The branch, located at 1407 Highway 66-S, Suite A., becomes the credit union’s nineteenth North Carolina office and the its first location fully staffed with bilingual personnel.
The grand opening festivities, scheduled from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., will include games, giveaways, free food and refreshments. Additionally, at least $500 in Harris Teeter gift cards will be given away to event attendees during the event as game prizes. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at noon.
“People from all over the globe are moving to the Triad,” remarks David Saint-Hilaire, Kernersville Branch Manager. “Our goal is to make this office appeal to all different cultures and make people feel welcome.”
Members Credit Union formed a Latino Services Department in 2004 to help serve North Carolina’s rapidly-growing Spanish-speaking population. The opening of the Kernersville “International” office is a continuation of the credit union’s commitment to serving that membership segment.
“As a member-owned, not-for-profit financial institution, our mission has always been to serve the unique needs of our membership,” comments President/CEO Jack V. Braswell, Jr. “We are excited that this office is equipped to offer personal, high-level credit union service regardless of your native language.”
The new office operates Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
