Credit Union hoping to open after New Years

T he building is nearly complete of the new branch of the Great Meadow Federal Credit Union.

With visible progress being made on the new spot, CEO Ryan Roberts said the company is looking to open just after New Years.

Work was originally expected to be done by Columbus Day weekend, but due to several glitches that date came and went.

“We had some small delays, mainly with design,” Roberts said in an email. The building will actually be placed on the foundation on Dec. 16, with an official opening happening soon after.

The new office will be a large branch with a lobby, a drive up ATM, a two-lane drive through, four or five offices, a conference room and a training room, Roberts said.

“The Granville office now will have all the products and services of your traditional financial institution,” Roberts said in June. He said expansion was a natural step as membership has continued to grow.

“We’ve grown tremendously in the last five years in both membership and in assets,” he said, explaining that assets have increased from $9 million to $25 million in the last five years, and membership has increased from 1,000 to 2,500 members in that chunk of time.

The new branch will be located at 26-36 East Main St. next to the current location in an old house at 24 East Main St.
