BLOOMINGTON, IL - Mid-Illini Credit Union (MICU) is pleased to announce the opening of their second location, MICU at Mount Pisgah. The new branch office is located inside the Mount Pisgah Baptist Church at 801 West Market Street in Bloomington.
"Our new location will help us offer our members more convenient access to Mid-Illini's products and services," said MICU President Tom Stewart. "We have lots of members who have been asking for a west-side location, so we moved one of our ATMs a few weeks ago and are very pleased to open our new office today. We often say that Mid-Illini offers 'What you want, when you want it, no matter where you are,' and MICU at Mount Pisgah will help us deliver on that promise to our members."
In addition to offering more convenient access to existing members, the mission of MICU at Mount Pisgah offers more: "After much research, we discovered that we have a tremendously underserved area right here in Bloomington-Normal, in terms of convenient access to affordable financial services offered by a traditional financial institution," said Julie Workman, Mid-Illini's Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. "As we looked for a partner to help us address the needs of this community, we learned that the leadership at Mount Pisgah had long planned to open a credit union to offer these traditional financial services to the members of their congregation and their neighborhood, so our partnership developed from there."
"As we get this location up and running, we plan to offer alternatives to payday loans, affordabe check cashing services and even pre-paid debit cards plus basic budget counseling services from our Certified Credit Union Financial Counselors (CCUFCs) to members who could benefit from such a service," Workman continued.
MICU at Mount Pisgah has a full-time staff and will be open from 10 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday and 8 am to 1 pm on Saturday.
