“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.” ~ by C. JoyBell C.
I love this quote and feel it is very fitting for what is happening here at Spokane Federal. Last month, as I moved out of the office I occupied for the last 14 years into my new “digs”, I was struck by how much change is happening all around us. Looking out the window of my new office I see Riverfront Park transforming right before my eyes; the new playground area is developing nicely and the plans for the Sportsplex are underway. Looking inside the Credit Union and right through my door, I see familiar faces taking on different positions and new faces taking on existing positions. It’s such an exciting time for us here at Spokane Federal! It’s not just us internally seeing changes, but you, as members, have also experienced change and there is more to come.
For many years we have heard feedback from members asking for a Valley Branch. We’ve always wanted to see this new location come to fruition but the timing never seemed to be right. I’m happy to report that the right time is NOW! We have purchased property in the Valley and have started working with HDG Architecture on a design. Our new location will be at the northeast corner of McDonald and Sprague. We believe this new location, coupled with our Main Branch, North Branch, our online and mobile banking presence, as well as the Shared Branch locations throughout the country, will provide our members, and all of our potential members, access to us when and where you need us. We’ll keep you updated on our progress!
We hope you find this news as exciting as we do and we hope you share the good news with family and friends who live in the Spokane Valley. Our goal is to be a financial partner who can offer all the same products and services found at larger financial institutions but with a level of personalized service we all value! After all, our belief has been, and will continue to be, to treat our members like “Family and Friends for Life.”
