Black Hills Federal Credit Union Expanding
On Tuesday, December 18, Black Hills Federal Credit Union celebrated the groundbreaking of its’ newest Member Service Center in Pierre, South Dakota.
Expected to open in the fall of 2013, the new 6,662 square foot facility is being built at 1530 N. Garfield Ave, next to Wal-Mart. The full-service location will host nine offices, five drive-up lanes and a deposit taking ATM.
According to Jerry Schmidt, Vice President of Operations, the new office will be an expanded version of their most recent Member Service Centers in Rapid City. “We continue to improve on each facility we build and this is no exception. It is our most environmentally conscientious branch,” said Schmidt. “The geothermal system greatly reduces energy consumption and costs and when combined with in-floor hydronic heat, we further improve the comfort of our members and staff.”
This will be the first Black Hills Federal Credit Union location in the Pierre area. Black Hills FCU serves residents in western South Dakota from offices in Rapid City, Custer, Hot Springs, Spearfish and Wall and recently added a location in Eagle Butte, 90 miles northwest of Pierre.
“We are excited to join the Pierre community,” said Roger Heacock, President and CEO of Black Hills FCU. “Pierre provides us the opportunity to add a convenient location to serve new and existing members. We have a history of providing quality financial products and services, we’re staffed with a terrific team of people, and we truly care about our members.”
