Tuscaloosa, AL – November 22, 2021 – Alabama ONE Credit Union will open a new branch in Centre, Alabama, located at 500 Cedar Bluff Rd, Centre, AL 35960, on Monday, November 22, 2021. With this new branch, Alabama ONE will now have eighteen branches, a 28% increase from fourteen branches in May.
With the opening of the Centre Branch, Alabama ONE continues to expand its footprint across the state. This branch will serve Cherokee County residents as well as employees in local businesses that participate as Special Employee Groups, or SEGs. It will act as a strategic anchor in the northeast corner of the state for business and community involvement.
Current and new Members will enjoy a greatly enhanced, modern branch facility which provides access to an ATM, an Interactive Teller Machine (or ITM), the latest online and mobile banking technology, affordable auto loan and mortgage products, rewards-driven credit cards, comprehensive insurance offerings, retirement and wealth advisory solutions and financial wellness resources.
“Alabama ONE is excited to open this branch in Centre and expand our reach across the state,” said Bill Wells, CEO. “By stretching us geographically, it also stretches us operationally to support and grow a branch in that area while maintaining our high level of member service. This branch is an opportunity to improve how we can serve our members effectively anywhere in the state.”
Alabama ONE continues to grow and expand its presence across the state this year, with the acquisition of First Bank of Linden in Linden, Alabama in May and its conversion in July; the opening of a branch in the Lake View community in September; a branch in the Alberta community of Tuscaloosa in October and the new Centre branch this month.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Centre branch is scheduled for January 6, 2022.
