Consumers Credit Union Taking Shape in Newest Market
Kalamazoo, MICH — Consumers Credit Union is pleased to announce that construction is underway on a location in Grand Haven. This will be Consumers’ first office in the city and marks the expansion of their Lakeshore market, which currently includes two offices in Holland and one in South Haven. This will be Consumers’ 23rd office in West Michigan and will serve the 1,000+ existing members in the city.
The one-story, 3,455-sq.-ft. office is located at 901 South Beacon Blvd., in the same location as the former Grand Haven Garden House. Partners on the project include contractor GDK Construction and building designers Bosch Architecture.
The office will open with Consumers’ TellerPlus+ technology in the lobby and drive-thru lanes. The location also features a free coffee bar, wireless banking stations with Wi-Fi and loan and member service areas.
The new office will support the organization’s growth in the Lakeshore and Grand Rapids metropolitan area. It will offer a full-range of Consumers’ services, including new accounts, loans, credit cards, mortgages, investment services, business services and more. The office will employ five full-time staff members, including a Grand Haven-based mortgage loan officer and business development manager.
“Having a footprint in Grand Haven is part of our strategy to move up the Lakeshore and expand choices for Holland and Spring Lake members,” says Kit Snyder, president and CEO. “We anticipate an increase in demand for consumer loans and mortgages, in particular, and are committed to providing the financing options that meet the needs of our community, including businesses.”
Consumers is currently celebrating their 70th year since their establishment in 1951. In office and online, they currently serve more than over 108,000 members in West Michigan with 22 locations and over $1.4 billion in total assets. The credit union has averaged 18% annual growth for the past 35 years and looks forward to continuing this trajectory by expanding its services into other new markets in the coming year, including Lansing and Muskegon.
