Neighborhood Credit Union celebrates grand opening of its Oak Cliff Branch

New location is located near the site of its former headquarters

DALLAS, TX (November 14, 2022)Neighborhood Credit Union, the first credit union in Dallas, recently celebrated the grand opening of its new brick-and-mortar location in Oak Cliff at 650 Fort Worth Avenue. The event was attended by city and state leaders including JR Huerta with the city of Dallas, Scherron Richard from Congressman Marc Veasey’s office and members of the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce. Attendees enjoyed food and drinks and got a first look at the large mural inside the branch designed by Dallas-based muralist Mari Pohlman.

“We can’t thank the city and state leaders, the chamber and the community enough for celebrating the grand opening of our Oak Cliff branch with us,” said Chet Kimmell, president and CEO of Neighborhood Credit Union. “We are delighted to be back home in Oak Cliff and be part of this thriving community that honors its roots but is focused on the future.”

Originally known as the Dallas Postal Employees Credit Union, Neighborhood Credit Union first opened its doors to members in April 1930. More than 90 years later, the company has grown significantly with assets topping $1 billion, a growing membership of 60,000 and 14 branches across the state. On top of the Oak Cliff opening, Neighborhood Credit Union recently opened branches in Anna, Prosper and Waxahachie.

“It is an exciting time at Neighborhood Credit Union, and we are excited to be returning to the Oak Cliff neighborhood,” said Francis Santana, senior vice president of retail at Neighborhood Credit Union. “For many of us this is a homecoming as we started our careers in the previous headquarters in Oak Cliff. We look forward to sharing the Neighborhood Credit Union spirit with our Oak Cliff neighbors and humbly serving our members as they strive to achieve their financial goals and improve their financial health and well-being.”

The new location will make it even more convenient for current members and others who live, learn, work or worship in the area to enjoy the benefits of a Neighborhood Credit Union membership.
