We’re Renovating our Branches
Several years ago we opened a new & updated branch on W. Union St.; now it’s time for our Shafer St. and E. State branches to get a facelift! We’re going to begin a series of major renovation projects in the coming weeks, including entirely updated interiors of the East State Street and Shafer Street locations, plus a new addition to the East State Street location.
These projects will be conducted in phases to minimize disruption to both members and staff. OUCU has grown in both membership and staff size; the current branches require expansion in order to meet current needs and facilitate expected future growth. These renovations will also introduce updated technologies and create a better member experience when visiting a branch. “We’re going to give members a choice of how to do business with us by significantly upgrading our technologies and at the same time allowing for even more face-to-face interaction with staff when desired. Our goal is to make it easy for the member,” says OUCU CEO Cory Corrigan.
Shafer St. Office
Construction on our Shafer St. office begins November 18 and will last for several months. In addition to renovating our front member area, we will be restructuring the back offices to create more space for our tax services and mortgage area. To allow for construction, a temporary teller line will be created; the drive-through will remain the same. You can look forward to:
- Updated member area
- Additional technology
- More back office space
E. State St. Office
Renovation of the lobby will begin in December at our E. State St. office. The second floor will be completely reconfigured to allow for additional departments to be relocated from our 2nd floor W. Union office. Next year a new addition will be built on to the back of the E. State building to accommodate more employees.
- Updated member area
- Additional technology
- Redesigned second floor to accommodate staff growth
- A new addition for more employee offices
- New traffic flow and additional parking
We appreciate your patience during this time. Our ultimate goal is to provide you, our member, with the quality service you expect.
