Aldergrove Financial Group is celebrating the grand opening of their newest location, the Abbotsford Community Branch on Saturday, Sept. 14.

It is the Aldergrove Credit Union’s sixth branch and the third branch in Abbotsford. All six branches are full service, with staff offering a complete range of financial services, including personal and business banking, borrowing, investing, insurance including Autoplan, and financial planning.

“We saw it as an expansion of our current footprint in West Abbotsford, at Mount Lehman Centre and Matsqui Village, that would allow the opportunity for growth and service to our East Abbotsford customers,” says Aldergrove Credit Union CEO Gus K. Hartl.

“While many of our peers are going smaller, with less staff and operating costs, we are here for the long haul.”

Hartl said the new branch will start with eight staff in the banking area, two insurance agents and one financial planner, and has room to grow larger.

With 19,000 members, Aldergrove Credit Union has seen significant growth over the past 12 years, with assets having increased from $300 million to $540 million today. The other three branches are in Langley Township, at Murrayville, along with the two original branches at 272 Street and 248 Street in Aldergrove.

The newly-built, three-storey building at the corner of Essendene and Gladys Avenue totals 5,500 square feet. The Abbotsford Community Branch is open six days a week, from Monday to Saturday, and also has plenty of free parking as well as a walk-up ATM.

“We are extremely happy to open our new location and want to celebrate with the entire community,” says Hartl.

Following Saturday’s ribbon cutting at 9:30 a.m. with Hartl and Mayor Banman, the branch will host children’s activities with a clown, animal balloons and face painting until 3 p.m. A gourmet hot dog barbecue lunch will operate from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and Country 107.1 will be broadcasting live from the branch throughout the day.

There will be random draws for prizes from downtown Abbotsford merchants, as well as a grand prize of $1,000 cash from the branch.

The Abbotsford Community Branch address is #100 – 2600 Gladys Avenue (at Essendene), Abbotsford.

Aldergrove Financial Group will be offering many grand opening specials at all of their locations, along with free insurance quotes, and financial assessments.
