July 10, 2019

Aldergrove, B.C. – On Saturday, July 6, Aldergrove Credit Union celebrated the opening of its new branch in the Mission community with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The new branch is located in the Heritage Park Marketplace, E-100 7871 Stave Lake Street, Mission.

Mayor Pam Alexis and MLA Simon Gibson joined the celebration, and both welcomed the credit union to the community.

Welcome Aldergrove Credit Union! Even though you’ve been serving our residents for a long time across the river, it’s a pleasure to see you take root in our community,” said Mayor Pamela Alexis, “You are the first credit union to locate in a residential development and you’ve helped us with our goal to create a complete liveable community where residents can access services without a vehicle. Thank you for making this important investment, your timing is perfect.”

Thank you for welcoming Aldergrove Credit Union to be a part of your beautiful and growing community – we’re honoured to be here and consider it a privilege to serve our members in Mission,” said Gus K. Hartl, Aldergrove Credit Union CEO, “There is an alignment of values with the Mission community. Our heritage and culture are strong like yours, and when we saw an opportunity to be a part of this thriving community that is experiencing rapid growth, similar to our own, it felt like a natural fit.

Aldergrove Credit Union has been supporting the Mission community and serving members in the surrounding areas from other locations in Abbotsford, Aldergrove and Langley dating back 75 years.

The new branch features an open concept with warm, natural elements and is designed to inspire great conversation. The space also includes a beautiful meeting room available to community groups as a free place to gather for meetings, including after hours. The room is equipped with technology and seating for approximately 10 people.

The credit union also introduced a new service delivery model which replaced traditional transactional style teller wickets with service desks that allow for comfortable and personal one-on-one conversations. “Our strong team of Financial Service Advisors are solutions focused and advice driven. This means that each of them can help you with simple day-to-day transactions like paying a bill, or for more advice-based decisions like choosing the right mortgage.” added Hartl.

MLA Simon Gibson also welcomed the credit union, “Congratulations, you picked the perfect spot to open a branch. Aldergrove Credit Union is a great example of a small credit union doing great things, they are very community minded and I’m really proud you have joined the Mission community.”

The new branch will be open five days a week, Tuesday to Saturday:
