STCU plans expansion into Tri-Cities

— STCU announced Monday that it will open branch locations in Pasco, Kennewick and Richland in 2018 and 2019. It is the first expansion outside the Spokane-North Idaho market for STCU, which has been voted 'best credit union' in the Spokane area for 12 consecutive years.

Last week, the credit union finalized the purchase of a 1.5-acre site for a Kennewick branch location at 4842 W. Hildebrand Blvd. Plans call for a 4,500-square-foot branch location with STCU Home Loans offices, a drive-through, and 24-hour ATMs. Designed by ALSC Architects, the location will have water-efficient xeriscape landscaping.

The Kennewick branch location will open this year. In addition, STCU plans to build branches in Pasco and Richland, with one opening in 2018 and the other in 2019. Locations have not yet been announced. STCU also has ATMs in Richland and Kennewick Target stores.

STCU is a not-for-profit financial cooperative with 175,000 members and $2.7 billion in total assets. The Northwest's third-largest credit union (and the largest headquartered east of the Cascades), STCU offers a full array of credit cards, loans and savings accounts for consumers and businesses. It is the leading provider of home and auto loans in Spokane.

STCU staffs each branch location with about six employees, and will be hiring from the Tri-Cities area. STCU employees get paid time off for volunteerism and full benefits, including a generous tuition reimbursement program.
