ROCKY HILL, Conn. (1/10/13)--Nutmeg State FCU's presence in Connecticut continues to grow. The $352 million asset credit union announced the expansion of two new branches in Wal-Mart stores in the coming months, including the first Nutmeg location in Middlesex County.
Nutmeg State FCU is headquartered in Rocky Hill, Conn., with offices in Manchester, East Windsor, Hartford, Glastonbury, New Britain and Newington.
The expansion means a bigger footprint in Connecticut, said Nutmeg State FCU President/CEO, John Holt. "This expansion allows us to serve even more members."
Both new branches will be located inside Wal-Mart stores in Cromwell and Bristol. Nutmeg State made Connecticut history in 2011 when it opened the state's first credit union branch inside a grocery store at its Newington Price Chopper location.
"By opening branches inside retail centers, we offer the ultimate convenience," said Holt. "We're committed to making banking as easy as possible for our members."
The addition of Bristol and Cromwell locations will bring Nutmeg's statewide presence to nine branches.
Nutmeg State also rolled out Connecticut's first mobile branch. The credit union employs the full-service branch on wheels daily, serving by making stops at workplaces and schools. Nutmeg's new mobile branch debuted Dec. 6 at Illing Middle School in Manchester, Conn. Besides community venues, the mobile branch will serve in disaster-relief situations. The vehicle is staffed with Nutmeg State FCU personnel (News Now Dec. 20).
