Growth Report 2: Mercer Credit Union to Rebuild Hermitage Office
HERMITAGE, Pa. – Mercer County Community Federal Credit Union will begin construction this spring of a building that will replace its current branch in Hermitage, Pa.
The two-story, 10,000-square-foot building is expected to open in early 2024.
“Mercer County Community Federal Credit Union has experienced tremendous growth over the past several years,” says CEO Sandi Carangi. “Rebuilding this branch underscores our commitment to our members, continuously focusing on the member experience, while also supporting our community with this significant financial investment.”
The credit union purchased the property adjacent to its Hermitage office, 559 N. Hermitage Road, in 2021.
The new branch will feature wider access for vehicles, full-service drive-thru lanes, an expanded lobby and a modern atmosphere, according to Carangi.
An additional loan office, a member service office and state-of-the-art technology will improve services for the credit union’s nearly 12,000 members, she adds.
While the new office is under construction, the credit union will serve its members at a temporary location in the Kohl’s shopping plaza at 568 S. Hermitage Road. This location will have ample parking and easy access.
Members can also visit the credit union’s branch in Sharon, Pa., 428 Sharpsville Ave., which has lobby and drive-thru service, an ATM and a night deposit box.
Mercer County Community Federal Credit Union was founded in 1957 by a group of teachers.
The credit union recently expanded its community charter, allowing it to expand its services to six additional counties in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
In support of its growing membership, the credit union also completed a technology upgrade last year, Carangi says.
