Westminster Savings Opens New Branch at Grandview Central in South Surrey

Surrey, B.C., May 15, 2017 – Starting today residents and businesses in Surrey will have access to a new personal and business banking centre, with the opening of the Westminster Savings Credit Union (Westminster Savings) Grandview Central branch in South Surrey, enabling them to discuss their major financial decisions from buying a home, financing a business, leasing a vehicle or business equipment, planning for their children’s education or meeting their investment or retirement needs.

The branch, which is located at 16090 24th Avenue, Surrey, features a welcoming interior and is aimed at providing an exceptional customer experience. Key elements include:

  • A designated business wicket and night deposit to meet the needs of our business members.
  • More office space to create an inviting atmosphere
  • A comfortable waiting area where customers can access information on our products and services and a Kids Zone, complete with a tablet with kids apps, to help keep our younger visitors entertained.
  • Free Wi-Fi to help our customers stay connected and fully charged while on the go.
  • Six day opening, including Saturdays, and an automated teller machine (ATM).

"With the opening of our Grandview Central branch, five of our 14 branches are now located in Surrey, the fastest growing city in the region,” said Gavin Toy, president and CEO. “We know from feedback that our customers want convenient access to more branches to seek advice and complete their transactions.

To help meet their needs, we are opening three branches this year. In January, we opened a branch at Central City Shopping Centre at 10153 King George Boulevard, Surrey and, in July, we’ll be opening our River District branch in south Vancouver. Expanding our branch footprint by 25% this year will ensure we remain well positioned to continue to serve the needs of our customers and members now and well into the future.”

“We know that customers are looking for personalized products and services that not only meet their personal and business needs, but that help make their busy and time-starved lifestyles at little bit easier. As a result, we’re excited to welcome customers to our new branch in this rapidly expanding neighbourhood,” said Maria Mura, branch manager. “With two branches in the White Rock/South Surrey community now, our team of highly experienced banking professionals is well positioned to assist our customers wherever they are located on the peninsula. We also have a number of mobile experts that can meet customers at their home or place of work making banking with Westminster Savings even easier.”
