PORTLAND, Ore., April 15, 2021 – As part of the largest branch and service area expansion in its history, OnPoint Community Credit Union announced today it will open four more of its 20 new Fred Meyer branches in April and May. Two of the new branches will serve Northeast Portland in Fred Meyer’s Hollywood store, located at 3030 NE Weidler Street, and its Glisan store, located at 6615 NE Glisan Street. The two additional new branches will serve Beaverton in Fred Meyer’s Walker Road store, located on SW 158th Avenue and Walker Road, and in its Beaverton Town Square store, located at 11425 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Highway. With these four openings, OnPoint will operate 44 branches in communities across Oregon and Southwest Washington. OnPoint plans to open 12 additional branches within Fred Meyer locations in the coming months.
“Opening new branches across the region allows us to cultivate deeper relationships with our members and our community,” said Rob Stuart, President and Chief Executive Officer, OnPoint Community Credit Union. “Being able to work with members face-to-face on financial wellness strategies builds a connection difficult to replicate virtually. Since the pandemic began, people have needed financial advice to navigate challenges quickly. Our new locations in Beaverton and Northeast Portland help us meet this need in a way that truly fits into the lives of our members.”
Each in-store OnPoint branch will offer members a complete suite of financial services, including membership enrollment, consumer and commercial lending, mortgages, financial planning, ATM and notarization. OnPoint’s new branches will offer existing and new members special grand opening offers through the end of the year, including a $200 bonus for new members.*
With the opening of these four branches, OnPoint will create a total of 28 new jobs across these local economies. Visit the Careers section of OnPoint’s website to learn more about becoming part of the OnPoint team at one of the new in-store branches.
