Northern Credit Union celebrates new branch design with grand re-opening at Second Line in Sault Ste. Marie
Public invited to BBQ in support of Algoma Residential Community Hospice
SAULT STE. MARIE - Northern Credit Union is celebrating the grand reopening of its Second Line branch in Sault Ste. Marie as the first location to feature a new branch design.
Festivities include a VIP ribbon-cutting ceremony and community charity BBQ on Tuesday, August 27 at 612 Second Line West.
The beautifully redesigned location features an open concept and welcoming environment for enhanced interaction with members, and it is reflective of Northern’s exciting new brand: True North Strong.
“Our brand and new branch model convey the message that we work harder and do more for our members, neighbours, and local businesses,” says Al Suraci, president and CEO of Northern Credit Union.
“The new design at Second Line and our recent sponsorship of the West End Community Centre, soon to be renamed the Northern Community Centre, demonstrate our dedication to Sault Ste. Marie, and to every one of the communities we serve. We’re committed to being the one true financial institution in the North.”
The new branch design is complemented by an extensive training program for staff, allowing Northern to provide optimum service to members for everything from basic transactions to complex financial solutions.
The addition of a Small Business Relationship Manager to the team is an asset as well.
The grand re-opening on Tuesday, August 27 includes the following events:
Charity BBQ, 612 Second Line West - 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Open to all members of the public, the charity BBQ will provide an opportunity to see the redesigned branch.
- All proceeds from the BBQ will support Algoma Residential Community Hospice (ARCH).
- Eleven-year-old entrepreneur and owner of Sarah Bug’s Sweet Treats will be baking goods to sell on site, with a portion of the proceeds also donated to ARCH.
VIP Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony and tour of new facility
- Invited guests will attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony, along with Northern’s Board of Directors and Executives, and representatives from municipal, provincial and federal government.
