IMPERIALÂ â€” In an effort to provide a state-of-the-art facility and focus on member service, the Â Sun Community Credit Union in Imperial celebrated its grand re-opening Tuesday morning after seven months of remodeling.
The Imperial branch has been in operation for the last twenty years and was due for a major overhaul, according to credit union officials.
â€œNobody else has anything like what we have,â€ said Dale Johnson, Chief Executive Officer for Sun Community Credit Union. â€œWe are here for the members, we are here for the community, and this is a reflection of our commitment. We turned this building into something beautiful.â€
The over-all interior remodeling was completed by Tim Walter Gaddis Contractors (TWG) and consists of three new offices, a safe vault, waiting area, five tellers’ stations andÂ anÂ employee lounge.
â€œThe remodeling was a total transformation,â€ said Socorro Diaz, branch manager for Sun Community. â€œOur customers have mentioned they are very happy with the remodeling and feel this (branch) is partly theirs because it is part of the community.â€
According to Johnson, out of the eight branches located within the Imperial Valley, the Imperial branch is the busiest. Other locations include Calipatria, Brawley, three in El Centro, Holtville and Calexico.
â€œWe have a total of eight branches in the Valley and the automatic teller machine (ATM) at this branch is by far the most popular one,â€ said Johnson. â€œWe are the only financial institution that serves the entire Valley.â€
Sun Community offers a variety of services including checking accounts, savings accounts, auto loans, certificates of deposit, commercial loans, real estate loans and consumer loans.
â€œWe appreciate the support from our customers and look forward to serving the community for many to come,â€ said Johnson.[envira-gallery id=”81162″]
