Allegacy, one of the largest credit unions in North Carolina is growing. Allegacy has expanded its services in Stokes County with the opening of its newest facility, located at 109 Carmel Drive, just off Main Street and Highway 52 in King.
“Our new King location allows us to do right for our members by making a positive impact on their financial lives closer to where they live and work,” said Cathy Pace, Allegacy President and CEO. “Our mission is to help Allegacy owners make smart financial choices, and by doing that we are enhancing their overall wellbeing, improving their finances and making life easier. It’s just part of our commitment to our members.”
The new facility held an official ribbon cutting ceremony on Nov. 5 while hosting the King Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours.
Pace said the opening of the new facility was a great homecoming for both her and the company.
“I want to say how exciting it is to be a part of the King community,” she said. “When I was in college my very first job was just across the street at Janice Clothing and my second job was also across the street at Town and Country. I would never have believed when I was 20 years old that I would be standing here today in this beautiful center with all of you wonderful community leaders and all of the wonderful Allegacy employees.”
Allegacy opened the King facility, Tuesday, Oct. 20, bringing its total number of branches to 16. The King office features Allegacy’s signature concierge service style, and offers a full line of financial opportunities for members including commercial loans, personal lending options such as mortgages and auto loans, and checking and savings accounts. The building itself features a fireplace with rock and cedar siding framing the outside. “Its architecture and design are unique, offering members an experience that makes them feel at home,” said Pace.
Allegacy’s other Stokes County location is located outside Tobaccoville’s RJR facility. After a short closure for renovation, that location will reopen November 2 to exclusively provide financial planning and investment services to the RJR facility employees and other members. An ATM will be onsite for convenient deposits and withdrawals for members.
“We remain committed to the RJR facility and the loyal members there who have allowed us to grow beyond the Tobaccoville location,” said Denise Maxwell, former Tobaccoville and current King financial center manager. “Due to its location outside the RJR facility, it was not always top-of-mind for Stokes residents looking for loans, mortgages and other financial needs. We are excited to extend our financial knowledge and offerings farther into the wonderful Stokes County community and become a bigger part of the area for generations to come.”
Hours at the new Allegacy location are as follows:
· Lobby hours from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday with an extended hour till 6 p.m. on Friday.
· Drive thru is open from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday with an extended hour till 6 p.m. on Friday.
