Westminster Savings Opens New Branch in River District Community in South Vancouver

Surrey, B.C., July 10, 2017 Westminster Savings Credit Union (Westminster Savings) is pleased to announce the opening of a new branch today offering residents in South Vancouver access to a personal and business banking centre at 8586 River District Crossing, Vancouver. This is the fifteenth branch for the credit union and its first in the city of Vancouver.

“The employees in the branch are well trained to serve our customers’ needs from start to finish and can provide a full range of day-to-day banking, lending and investment services,” says Gavin Toy, President and CEO. “This new branch expands our geographic footprint and will ensure Westminster Savings can continue to provide an exceptional customer experience, and keeps us grounded towards our vision of enriching the lives of our customers.”

The six-day operation branch uses enhanced technology solutions to better serve customers. It offers free Wi-Fi and a mobile charging station, as well as a Kids Zone, complete with tablets, to help keep younger visitors engaged. In addition to storefront access from the sidewalk, there is substantial underground parking.

“We’re thrilled to offer an inviting atmosphere for customers to discuss their major financial decisions from buying a home, financing a vehicle or a small business, planning for their children’s education or meeting their investment or retirement needs,” says Branch Manager, Marvie Jayme.

To that end, the branch has an open concept design that incorporates elements of the community and the local environment, including layers of curved panels on the walls and millwork inspired by the landscape and valleys formed by the flowing water along the nearby Fraser River.

"We are excited to open a new branch in Vancouver and look forward to serving the needs of our customers while growing with the River District community as it develops in the coming years,” says Ms. Jayme.
