Park City Credit Union Groundbreaking Ceremony
On July 19, 2017, Park City Credit Union officially broke ground at the site of their new Headquarters office at the southeast corner of Highway 64 and Pine Ridge Avenue in Merrill, Wisconsin. The Credit Union held a groundbreaking ceremony to commemorate the event inviting their Board of Directors, Chamber of Commerce, Credit Union members and the public to celebrate their new exciting chapter in the Merrill community. At the ceremony, everyone was invited to sign a steel beam that would be used during the construction of the building, to truly honor the strong connection and commitment Park City has with the Greater Merrill community.
The new 26,000 square-foot headquarters will feature a full-service branch, drive-thru services, investment center, lending/mortgage center, loan processing center, call center, IT, accounting and marketing departments. In addition to the space, a 2,500 square-foot café/bistro will provide another additional convenience for the Credit Union members which will maintain its own hours of operations and it will be open to the public seven days a week. “With this new headquarters, we are putting members first with a superior interactive service experience,” said CEO Val Mindak. “We have outgrown our current space, and this move allows us to centralize our staff in one convenient location and to provide a suite of stronger financial products to our members while giving them an exceptional member experience.”
