UPDATED — A former bank no doubt is a better home for a credit union than a former doctor’s office, and that’s why Medical Community Credit Union is moving.
President and CEO Larry Schmitz says the credit union will be moving to “a true retail banking facility” where Garden Plain State Bank used to be at 1400 S. Oliver next to the Parklane Shopping Center.
Visibility and accessibility are the top reasons for the move, Schmitz says.
“It also gives us the opportunity to potentially have an ATM location.”
There will be a drive-through as well.
Currently, he says that “people have to get out of their car and walk in.”
There will be other new services that the new site will have as well, such as safe deposit boxes that are already there.
“We also don’t have a vault like that building does,” Schmitz says.
