Ideal Credit Union moves from West St. Paul to Inver Grove Heights

WOODBURY, MN (May 20, 2016) — Ideal Credit Union has moved from South Robert Street in West St. Paul to a new state-of-the-art facility in Inver Grove Heights. Located at 7791 Amana Trail, in the Argenta Hills development next to Target, the new Inver Grove Heights office opened for business on Monday, May 9, 2016. The new office is approximately 3,000 sq. ft. and offers a tech-savvy approach to traditional banking, utilizing technology and self-serve features both inside and out.

Argenta Hills is a planned community consisting of 140 single family homes and over 370,000 square feet of retail space, located at the intersections of Highway 55 and South Robert Trail in Inver Grove Heights. The credit union’s West St. Paul location at 1725 South Robert Street has been sold to a private developer.

“The decision to sell the West St. Paul office was extremely difficult, but the building is outdated and becoming more expensive to maintain given its age,” said Ideal CU President/CEO Brian Sherrick.” We are excited about the opportunity to expand to this new location, new community and new area. We are confident members will find the new Inver Grove Heights branch to be just as convenient.”
