New Branch Opens in Centralia

New Centralia in-store branch

New branch to serve NW section of town from the Centralia Safeway

Olympia – TwinStar Credit Union opened a new branch inside the Safeway store at 1129 Harrison Ave, Centralia on March 19, 2018. The new branch will be a full-service location occupying approximately 350 square feet inside the grocery store. There will be a new ATM installed on site for public use.

The new Centralia in-store branch will serve the busy northwest area of Centralia. It will be TwinStar’s fourth Lewis County location.

“Centralia is growing and we’re pleased to be growing along with the community,” said Jeff Kennedy, TwinStar Credit Union CEO. “It can be a bit tricky to get across town these days during busy commutes - the location in the northwest part of town, and very near the freeway, is perfect for our members.”

The branch will deliver all the normal banking transactions people are used to, but is designed to help TwinStar members take better control of their finances.

“We’ve noticed a change in member behavior, they are not coming in for simple transactions nearly as often because most of those can be done electronically,” said Kennedy. “The new Centralia In-Store branch allows us to provide our members answers to financial questions and help them set-up accounts on their phone or computer. TwinStar has developed quite a list of new technologies in the last few years and this branch will help connect members to our new banking applications.”

The new Centralia in-store branch will be open from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday to Friday and from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday.

TwinStar Credit Union manages $1.3 billion in assets and operates 20 branches from Portland, OR to Tacoma, WA. See TwinStarCU.com/Branches for more locations.
