Earlier this year, we announced a construction project at our 320 Alliance Place NE Rochester location to rectify water damage to the building’s foundation. As the project has advanced, we uncovered significant damage to the entryway and the drive-thru walls. With winter approaching, concerns have arisen about the structural integrity of the building.
Therefore, taking every precaution possible, the credit union board of directors and executive leadership team have made the decision to prioritize our staff and our member’s safety by closing the NE Rochester branch effective Wednesday, October 18th, 2023.
It is unclear at this time when we will be able to re-open the NE Rochester location. Please know that we are committed to serving all our members in NE Rochester and we will share important updates about the branch as they become available.
