EAST WENATCHEE — Goodbye, old Numerica. Hello, new Numerica.

Excavators took huge bites here Wednesday of the old Numerica Credit Union building at the corner of Grant Road and Eastmont Avenue. The demolition helps prep for a spankin’ new bank building to be built on the site. It should be open by early 2015.

The Spokane-based credit union — with 18 branches in Eastern Washington and northern Idaho — plans for the new building’s design to be “open and transparent,” said company spokeswoman Kelli Hawkins. “We want our customers to walk in and feel comfortable and welcome.”

The new 3,784-square-foot building will be “bright, open and even relaxing,” said Hawkins. It’ll include a tech bar with iPads for customers to access online banking, learn about Numerica services or check their email. It’ll feature a refreshment bar with coffee, cookies, water and other snacks. It’ll have comfortable chairs and a few sofas.

In the meantime, East Wenatchee’s Numerica has relocated services (and its seven employees) to a temporary space across the street in Eastpoint Plaza, 509 Grant Road, the location of Glazed Doughnuts, Mountain View Fitness and Jack in the Box.
