On September 26, the credit union’s Chehalis branch moved to its new location at 1725 NW Louisiana Avenue, just off of I-5 and across from Home Depot. The new location brings a larger footprint and more features to better serve members.

“In addition to the brand new building and expanded features, we’re excited about the convenience of the new location,” said Stephanie Rhodes, Chehalis Branch Manager. “Our new space is closer to the highway, with more amenities and other businesses close by.”

The new 4,500 square-foot branch features a tall ceiling with an exposed wood deck and large windows to bring in natural light. It also provides an improved experience for members with new features including:
