St. Lawrence Federal Credit Union opens new branch in Potsdam

Grand Opening celebration Friday, June 16

OGDENSBURG, NY (June 5, 2017) — St. Lawrence Federal Credit Union is celebrating the opening of their new Potsdam branch at 6585 State Highway 56, just north of the village. It is the Credit Union’s fourth branch location. A Grand Opening celebration will take place Friday, June 16 beginning at 11am with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony featuring local dignitaries. Refreshments will be served from 11am – 1pm. There will also be giveaways, a raffle, and a live radio broadcast by B99.3 Hits.

With an emphasis on digital and business banking, the new 2,700 square foot branch in Potsdam will have options for people to bank traditionally or electronically. The new location will feature three state-of-the-art ATMs that allow members to efficiently withdraw money, and make cash and check deposits.

“The Credit Union is excited about the opening of the new Potsdam branch and being able to more conveniently serve more of St. Lawrence County,” said Todd Mashaw, St. Lawrence FCU Chief Executive Officer. “With the addition of our new branch, Members now have four branches where they can bank with a teller. Those who prefer electronic banking, can do it by phone, computer, or tablet. The new branch will look less traditional but we can still serve everyone, no matter how they prefer to bank,” said Mashaw.

The new branch will also offer business deposits and lending. “We are committed to reaching out to local businesses, letting them know we are in town, to help them grow with our banking services,” Mashaw added.
