Maine shared branching tops 100 branches
WESTBROOK, Maine (5/4/09)--Maine Credit Unions’ Shared Branching Network announced that coverage has been expanded to include Aroostook County, giving the network statewide coverage. The addition of Aroostook County includes 11 new locations with Acadia FCU, Fort Kent; NorState FCU, Madawaska; and The County FCU, Caribou, joining the network and bringing the total number of locations in Maine to more than 105. The shared branching network gives the nearly 415,000 members of participating Maine credit unions access to nearly twice as many branches as any other financial institution in the state, said the Maine Credit Union League. John Murphy, league president, explained that the expansion of shared branching in Maine is another example of how Maine credit unions work to bring convenience to their members. “In today’s economic climate, the opportunity to save travel time, effort and fuel through accessing a nearby shared branching location is extremely valuable, especially from a convenience standpoint, to credit union members,” he said.
