ēCO Credit Union celebrates Alabaster Branch Open House and Ribbon Cutting

BIRMINGHAM, AL (February 7, 2017) — ēCO Credit Union partnered with the Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce to host an Open House and Ribbon Cutting for its new Shelby County location. The Alabaster Branch is a full-service location, offering lobby and drive-thru service.

“We have a very faithful membership in Shelby County, and we are excited to continue to serve them at this new branch,” said Joey Hand, ēCO CEO. “With a prominent location, off of Highway 119, we also hope to attract new members who will take advantage of our great products and services.”

In addition to offering specials for new members and giving away a 4K HD TV, ēCO also celebrated the Ribbon Cutting through a social media contest. The community was invited to nominate their favorite Shelby County teacher using “#eCOLovesTeachers.”

“We feel it’s important to make all of the communities we serve a better place to live, work and play,” said Melissa Stewart, ēCO Marketing Director. “As we move to our new Alabaster location, we are excited to show our commitment to educators and the community.”

After a number of great nominations, Olivia Roberts from Vincent Elementary School is the recipient of the $500 classroom grant.
