A new credit union will be opening soon in Mount Airy.
Allegacy Federal Credit Union, which bills itself as “one of the largest credit unions in North Carolina,” will be opening in Mount Airy by the end of the year, the firm said.
It will have a branch located at 1996 Rockford St., Suite 300, where the former Long John Silver’s was located. It will be part of the new development there, along with several other businesses. Among those are Jimmy John’s restaurant, Starbucks and an AT&T cell phone store.
“We are thrilled to join the wonderful, growing community of Mount Airy,” said Cathy Pace, president and CEO. “Our expansion will allow us to better server current members and provide fresh opportunities for new members looking for a financial partner dedicated to doing the right thing for their well being.
“Allegacy is committed to helping our members lead a vibrant, healthy, financially sound life and we look forward to serving, partnering and working in the Mount Airy community.”
In announcing the planned opening, Allegacy said the location will “include dedicated resources focused on small business, financial planning and mortgage services. In addition to offering a full array of retail services, Allegacy offers competitive small business products and services and employer benefits.
“Many established Mount Airy and Surry County businesses are already members of Allegacy’s Select Employer Groups, which allows employees to enjoy credit union benefits.”
Among those, the credit union said, were Pike Electric, Insteel Industries, Insteel Wire Products, Mountain Valley Hospice and Palliative Care, Omega Construction, and Foothill Ford.
Hours at the location are expected to be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, with a 6 p.m. closing time on Friday.
