Ideal Credit Union to hold community appreciation event 5 branches in 5 days August 11- 15, 2014

WOODBURY, MN — (July 29, 2014) In celebration of its 88th anniversary and the successful completion of its name change, Ideal Credit Union is inviting members and the community to stop by its branches the week of August 11-15 to enjoy a hot dog, get a free gift and receive a free sample from the vault. The serial number on that free sample could be the ticket to winning $1,000 in one of the credit union’s daily giveaways.

A food truck from Aesop’s Table will be grilling hot dogs from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on the following dates at these Ideal Credit Union locations:

  • Monday, August 11 – Eagan office, 3225 Denmark Ave.
  • Tuesday, August 12 – Hugo office, 14750 Victor Hugo Blvd. N.
  • Wednesday, August 13 – North St. Paul office, 2401 N. McKnight Rd.
  • Thursday, August 14 – West St. Paul office, 1725 S. Robert St.
  • Friday, August 15 – Woodbury office, 8499 Tamarack Rd.

As an active community partner, Ideal CU is encouraging attendees to bring a nonperishable food item to donate to local food shelves. The Ideal Credit Union Community Foundation will present a check in the amount of $500 to local food shelf representatives at each of the credit union’s five branches during the celebration to help feed our hungry neighbors. Coats for the annual for the Salvation Army Coats for Kids drive will also be collected.

“We are grateful for the incredible support we have received throughout our 88 year history,” said Ideal CU President Brian Sherrick. “Members and the community have embraced our recent name change and made the transition extremely smooth. We felt a party was in order to celebrate these two major milestones.”

Attendees are welcome to take part in one or all of the celebrations to increase their chance of winning. For more information and official rules, visit

Formerly Postal Credit Union (PCU), the change to Ideal Credit Union took effect June 4, 2014. The change to Ideal was a thoughtful and strategic move by management and the credit union’s board of directors.  Extensive research showed the credit union needed a name that would better align it with its broad and diverse community-based membership, and provide a foundation for growth in the years ahead. There is no merger, no new ownership and no new management.
