We’re introducing a new branch in downtown Warren!
Marking the next phase of our continued growth in Northeast Ohio, 7 17 Credit Union is pleased to announce the upcoming addition of our new downtown Warren branch, located at 157 West Market Street on Courthouse Square.
The branch is slated to open later this year.
As a community partner – and the only sizeable local financial institution headquartered in Trumbull County - 7 17 believes in the renaissance of downtown Warren. This new location is a wonderful opportunity for us to support our community and local businesses, while helping to spur growth and sharing in the rich history of the area.
As financial institutions have disappeared from the area over the years, 7 17 recognized a void in the community. This new location will allow the credit union to better serve the small businesses in the downtown area, as they have been left with limited options to conveniently do their banking.
Additionally, this new location will provide an opportunity for the underbanked. As financial institutions have pulled out of downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods, it has become challenging for many to meet their financial needs.
The new branch will have a smaller footprint than our traditional branches, but will offer account and loan openings, consultative services and a Personal Teller Machine (PTM) for routine transactions. PTMs provide advanced technology that allows members to talk directly to a 7 17 Personal Teller via two-way video. Similar in appearance to an ATM, PTMs permit members to perform virtually any transaction they could at a traditional teller line. The technology also allows the credit union to provide extended hours of service. After hours, the machine can be used as an ATM.
We’re excited to better serve the community and our members in the Warren area, and we look forward to this next chapter of growth.
