WSECU Opens Fourth Spokane-Area Branch

Nov. 1, 2021 (Olympia, Wash.) – WSECU members in Spokane now have more options when it comes to finding a convenient location for banking.

On Nov. 1, the credit union’s Spokane Division branch opened at 6301 N Division St., at the intersection of Division and Francis, making banking with WSECU easier than ever for members in northern Spokane.

“We’re excited to expand and increase access to more members in the Spokane region,” said Dan Thorpe, Spokane Division Branch Manager. “We’ve been watching for the right location to open up and we jumped when we had the chance at this corner.”

In addition to reaching a new area of Spokane for WSECU members, the new 4,214 square foot branch offers:

  • Drive-thru service lanes
  • Walk-up and drive-up 24/7 ATMs
  • Safe deposit boxes
  • Coin machine
  • Notary services
  • Shared branching

Branch hours will be 9 am-5:30 pm Monday through Thursday.

The building at one of Spokane’s busiest intersections provides the credit union a great location to better serve the northern Spokane area. Construction partners include architects Bernardo/Wills PC and general contractor Yost Gallagher Construction, both of Spokane. The branch will feature a large-format photo wall by WSECU member Trent Amonett depicting a canola field.

The Division branch is the fourth in the county for the credit union, which has a long history of serving members and the community in the region. WSECU’s first location east of the Cascades opened in 1973 in Medical Lake. That was followed by branches in Spokane and Spokane Valley. The other three local branches are located on East Sprague Avenue in Spokane Valley, W Northwest Boulevard in Spokane and East Highway 902 in Medical Lake. The credit union has 22 branches across the state in total.

WSECU’s deep history within the community – and deep commitment to the community – is part of its identity. Each year the credit union sets aside 4% of its net income to invest in the work of nonprofits and programs with a special focus on education, self-sufficiency and public employees and assets. Longtime partners in the region include 2nd Harvest Inland Norwest, Kitchen Spokane, Communities in Schools, Women and Children’s Free Restaurant, SNAP, Boys & Girls Clubs of Spokane, and the Washington State Parks Foundation.

Including branch manager Thorpe, the location will open with four employees. Thorpe, a longtime WSECU team member and a Spokane native, expressed his optimism about the new team members who will join him in serving members at the new branch.

“We’re so excited to have built a team with some employees who are new to WSECU and some who are already familiar with our culture of compassion and outstanding service,” Thorpe said. “In every case, I know they’ll be ready to support members with their day-to-day needs and help them reach their long-term financial goals.”

Your perspective is important to us and helps us see where we’re hitting the mark and where there might be areas to improve.
