Northern Credit Union Enhances Member Service

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON (September 7, 2012) Northern Credit Union is now offering Thursday evening and Saturday retail service to members in select communities.  
“Our members’ best interests are always top of mind, and we sincerely value their business.  Providing the convenience of evening and weekend service enhances our ability to accommodate member needs,” says Al Suraci, CEO of Northern Credit Union.  “Saturday hours have already been very well received at our two Thunder Bay locations, and we’re pleased to extend them, along with evening hours, to other branches.”
As of September 15th, Northern will extend access to a full range of services from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Saturdays and until 7 p.m. Thursdays to Sault Ste. Marie (McNabb Street), Sudbury (Long Lake Road), Garson, North Bay, Timmins and Arnprior branches.     
To celebrate extended hours, Northern Credit Union will be offering a special one-day-only, deposit rate of 1.99% on new 1-year term deposits, on September 15th.   BBQ fundraisers, hosted by local delegate groups, will also be held that day, with all proceeds going to the Elliot Lake Relief Fund to assist people affected by the mall collapse earlier this year.  Those who purchase food at the BBQ or contribute to the Elliot Lake Relief Fund will be entered into a draw to win 2 round-trip airline tickets to any Porter Airlines destination.
