Bay Federal Credit Union’s relocated Salinas Branch at Harden Ranch Plaza now open

Environmentally-friendly redesigned branch includes convenient amenities

CAPITOLA, CA (November 17, 2021) — Bay Federal Credit Union’s relocated Salinas branch in Harden Ranch Plaza Shopping Center, located at 1524 N. Main St, officially opened its doors for business on Monday, Nov. 8.

The credit union branch relocated from its previous location in downtown Salinas to this new location, previously occupied by Pier 1 Imports between Walgreens and Ross in the shopping center. The new branch allows for easy access to Highway 101, plenty of parking for the credit union’s members, and is less than four miles from the previous downtown location.

Amenities in this new environmentally-friendly branch redesign include coin machines, ATMs, and private offices that allow members to have convenient access to mortgage lending officers, business lending officers, and investment service advisors.

“We are so excited that our new redesigned branch in Harden Ranch Plaza is now open,” said Carrie Birkhofer, President and CEO of Bay Federal. “Our friendly, local employees are ready to provide loans and other banking services to the entire Salinas community.”

Salinas members can take advantage of Bay Federal’s wide variety of products and services that include auto loans, home loans, credit cards, checking and savings accounts, and more. The branch also offers business members services such as business loans and credit cards, registration services, and additional options for our local businesses.

Bay Federal Credit Union and the Salinas Valley Chamber of Commerce will host a special ribbon-cutting ceremony commemorating the opening of the new location on Thursday, Dec. 9 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Members of the community are welcome to attend.
