Navy Federal Credit Union, the world’s largest credit union, held a grand-opening ceremony for its 257th branch in Richmond Hill on Tuesday.
The new branch is the 14th to open this year and will serve approximately 25,000 members living in the region, including members from nearby Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield.
“Richmond Hill is a great place for us to serve our members,” Navy Federal Regional Manager Mark Enderle said. “We can’t wait to make an impact in the community and with those who will use Richmond Hill as their home branch.”
Richmond Hill Mayor Harold Fowler and representatives from the Richmond Hill/Bryan County Chamber of Commerce attended the event.
After the ceremony, a donation check was presented to The Matthew Freeman Project, a charitable organization that supports and promotes education.
The branch features new technology and enhanced services, such as a larger space to accommodate more teller lines, a drive-thru, full mortgage services and an ATM. Branch hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday. It is at 3490 U.S. Highway 17.
