BECU ( Boeing Employee Credit Union ) announced late last year that they had plans to open a series of new branch locations in the Spokane area. These will be the credit union's first expansion outside of the Puget Sound region and was deemed necessary as BECU already has over 4500 members in the Spokane area.
Now, we're finding out exactly when and where Spokane will start to see BECU pop up. We've learned both local branches will open to the public on Sept 19th. . Initially BECU had mentioned opening three branches in our area, but for now however, only two will open. And, those two new branches will be located at-
900 Blk of N. Division, Spokane in a end cap space of the Cataldo Square shopping center
615 N. Sullivan Rd. Spokane Valley in a end cap at the same small plaza as Jimmy John's
BECU will also continue to operate it's customer service call center from Spokane ( with over 100 employees ), like it had for sometime before the new branch announcments . BECU is a non-profit credit union, who's profits are turned over the members in the form of fewer fees and better rates on loans. The credit union also, already has realtionships with several local non-profits and schools and plans to continue giving back the community.
At the same time BECU is planning to branch out with new Spokane area locations, they are also branching out to the Boeing plant in South Carolina. While Spokane will be first in line to get a BECU branch, two more are scheduled to open inside Boeing's factory in North Charleston,SC .
Membership with BECU is open to all who attend school , live, work or worship in Washington State. You can also join if or a family member of yours is or was employed by Boeing or it's subsidiaries.
