Milwaukie, Oregon (January 13, 2014)—Responding to growing consumer demand to shop and invest locally, Advantis Credit Union has opened a new community branch in West Linn. The branch is located at 21900 Willamette Drive, Suite 204 and opens this Friday and Saturday, January 17th and 18th with a Grand Opening event. The West Linn location is the credit union’s sixth metro area branch.
The public is invited to visit the new branch to learn more about the benefits of credit union membership at Advantis this Friday, January 17th from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, January 18th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Advantis also invites members, friends and neighbors to visit the branch now through February 28th to enter to win one of three Grand Prizes: a trip to Hawaii, custom cruiser bicycle from First City Cycles, or a $500 gift certificate to Market of Choice.
“We are delighted to expand our metro area footprint in West Linn to better serve our members who live in the area and to let residents know about the merits of banking with a local, member-owned financial cooperative,” says Wendy Edwards, Chief Administrative Officer for Advantis. “As one of Oregon’s oldest credit unions, we share a deep commitment to our local community. Our members and neighbors can expect not only to get more value with Advantis, but ongoing community engagement.”
