Arbor Financial Credit Union continues to grow in West Michigan

KALAMAZOO, MI (July 1, 2019) — Arbor Financial Credit Union is growing to better serve the greater Portage community. Over the last three months, Arbor Financial has opened their doors to two new full-service branches located on Portage Road and South Westnedge Ave. Now totaling nine branches, Arbor Financial has no plans to stop with plans to open two more locations in Grand Rapids within the next year.

“Many people realize the value that locally owned– and maybe smaller businesses– bring to our community,” says Tammy Phelps, Vice President of Operations at Arbor Financial Credit Union. “It gives you a sense of ownership, a sense of pride, a sense of trust and loyalty that really is unique in the smaller business market. The philosophy of credit unions is people helping people. And our purpose here at Arbor is to help our members grow and achieve their dreams through innovative financial solutions. We are very excited for our growth and for what our future brings, to be able to do that for our members it does give us great pride and gives us great joy.”

In addition to the new branches, Arbor Financial recently announced their high-interest checking account has increased and members can now earn up to a whopping 5.00% APY* on balances up to $15,000. Previously, free Momentum Checking returned 4.00% APY, which is an incredible rate, but they wanted to create something extraordinary that will attract new members, as well as delight the members they already have.
