Fort Walton Beach, Fla. (April 21, 2022) – Eglin Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce a new branch will be added in Pace, Fla., making it the second location in Santa Rosa County. As part of the Credit Union’s growth and expansion efforts, property was recently purchased at 4413 US-90 in Pace. Construction is expected to begin in a few months and be completed in 2023. La Macchia Group is the design/build firm for the new Pace branch, the Operations Center and the recently announced Freeport branch, all expected to be completed in 2023.
“We are excited to announce that the National Credit Union Administration has recently approved expanding our field of membership to include anyone who lives, works (or regularly conducts business in), worships or attends school, and businesses and other legal entities in specific geographic locations within Escambia County, Alabama as well as Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties, Florida,” Eglin Federal Credit Union President/CEO Jerry Williams said. “The new branch location in Pace was selected to add convenient and affordable products and services as well as financial wellness resources to a growing membership. We will look for opportunities to partner with local chambers and businesses to add value to their community and employees. We do more than build credit. We build community.”
The new branch in Pace will be very similar to the Freeport branch design with approximately 4,000 square feet, two ITMs (Interactive Teller Machines) in the drive-up and additional ITMs in the entry foyer and lobby. The branch will have safe deposit boxes, Coinstar, night drop and a member engagement area with interactive touch screen monitors.
