GESA could open new eastside branch by March

GESA-1

GESA Credit Union, the Richland-based outfit with the big honkin’ facility on Wenatchee Avenue, will open a new East Wenatchee branch sometime in March, says Chief Financial Officer Jim Sheehy.

The new office, already in mid-construction (see photo), will be located at 303 Valley Mall Parkway, former home of Mattress Outlet and just two doors down from the Wasabi Sushi Bar — which means you can deposit your paycheck and munch deep-fried California Roll pretty much in one stop.

GESA’s expanding into its second Wenatchee Valley branch because the credit union’s local membership and deposit base has quadrupled since it opened in 2004, says Sheehy. The East Wenatchee location — with four employees and 3,500 square feet — will also provide more convenient banking for customers across the river.

Customers at the new branch will find the usual services — they can make deposits, take out loans, use an ATM — but will also find video banking through new-fangled personal teller machines, which are ATMs that use video-conferencing technology to link onscreen with centrally-based tellers. It’s one of the first such video set-ups in the Northwest, said Sheehy, and will allow GESA to offer service on Saturdays.

Cusick Construction & Development of Wenatchee is transforming the interior from mattress showroom to credit union. The remodel is headed up by Project Manager Dick Alexander.
