The County Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce the construction and opening of a new full-service branch in Mars Hill in 2019. “We’ve been looking for the opportunity to expand within our current field of membership and the Mars Hill community has the best opportunity on the Route 1–Route 1A corridor”, said Ryan Ellsworth, President and CEO. “Once we heard a convenient location at the corner of Route 1 and Route 1A intersection was going to be available, we knew it would be a great location for our new branch.”
The former Mars Hill One Stop building will be torn down and the land will be prepared for construction to begin in early spring of 2019 with a grand opening slated for late fall. The new branch layout is still in the planning stages, however, it will be a full functioning branch and offer all of The County Federal Credit Union’s products and services, including a drive-up window and drive-up 24 hour ATM. Current members and new members will have access to our full suite of services on site which includes Mortgage Loans, Personal Loans, Share Deposit Accounts and Checking Accounts along with all the benefits of our online and mobile banking.
“Currently we have over 1,000 members in Mars Hill and its bordering communities. We see great potential for growth in that area of the county and we are optimistic that area residents and business owners will allow us to help them meet their financial goals. New members will experience ‘Our Member Promise” which promotes the values we live by to always work in the best interest of our members; to simplify their financial life; to make it easy to do business with us, and to partner with members so they can achieve their financial success,” stated Ellsworth. “We deeply value our members and are extremely grateful that they continue to place their trust in us. We are looking forward to being an active member of the Mars Hill community, and welcome the opportunities the new branch will present.”
