Eastern Utah Community Credit Union celebrated its grand opening on Friday in Castle Dale. The community was invited to come eat lunch and see the new facility. The Emery County Business Chamber was there to support the opening of the new business.
The credit union now has four branches in Utah and provides all banking services. One of the services that they offer is remote capture, which allows customers to take a picture of their check and deposit it remotely. Customers can do their banking almost exclusively from home or the office.
“We are here for the community and we want you to experience the difference of Eastern Utah Credit Union,” Jo`el Hatch, manager of the credit union, said. “We are big enough to offer all products and services, but small enough to care about the community and your individual needs.”
The credit union also provides local decision making on lending. According to Bruce Yost, the CFO of Eastern Utah Credit Union, this is a huge advantage because “the person across the desk makes the lending decisions, instead of someone from over the mountain or out of state”. Because the lending is all done locally, after customers fill out an application, they can walk out of the credit union with their loan in place that day. This is one of the unique services that they provide to the community.
Eastern Utah Credit Union is dedicated to serving the community and invites everyone to come in and let them help with each individual’s banking needs.
