CHELSEA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Metro Credit Union recently celebrated the opening of their new branch
located at 334 Watertown St. in Newton with an official ribbon cutting
ceremony on Wednesday, August 20 2014.
“Metro’s decision to open here has been many years in the making. We
have thousands of members in the city and in neighboring communities and
have always felt that our expansion here was inevitable. It’s great to
finally make it happen,” said Robert M. Cashman, President and CEO. “We
are proud to be in Newton and look forward to expanding our efforts
through community outreach, increased financial literacy and becoming a
true partner in the neighborhood,” Cashman added.
The new location marks Metro’s 15th branch and is located in
the village of Nonantum. Metro’s decision to open its branch in the
village of Nonantum was based not only the rich history of the area, but
also on the residents and community itself. Nonantum is in early stages
of revitalization. As a credit union, Metro has been active participants
in this process as it has occurred elsewhere in the communities we serve.
This branch opened for business on Monday, August 18, and provides
members living in the Newton area convenient banking services.
