Conn. Credit Union Bows 1st-ever Supermarket Branch
Nutmeg State Federal Credit Union (FCU) has become the first credit union in Connecticut with a branch inside a grocery store, according to the lending institution. The branch opened on Oct. 24 within a Price Chopper in Newington, Conn., with a grand-opening event scheduled for Oct. 29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Rocky Hill, Conn.-based full-service community credit union currently has six other branches across the state, in addition to four recently added free ATM locations.
“Nutmeg State Federal Credit Union is a great alternative for banking in Connecticut,” said President and CEO John Holt. “Our account holders enjoy top-notch customer service and a variety of extremely competitive products such as low rates on car loans, personal loans and credit builder loans. We also offer free checking with a free debit card.”
The credit union has a number of activities planned for the grand-opening celebration, including the selection of shoppers at random to win a grocery giveaway and live entertainment. Additionally, from Oct. 29 through Nov. 5, Nutmeg State FCU will offer the following special offers to new members: $50 to anyone opening a More-Than-Free-Checking Account; 1.99 percent APR on new, used or refinanced auto loans; and the opportunity to earn an additional 50 basis points on a certificate of deposit when you open a More-Than-Free-Checking Account.
“Our new Price Chopper location will offer the ultimate in convenience,” added Holt. “It will be as simple as banking while you shop and also enjoying the best rates from a local credit union.”
