Generations Federal Credit Union opens two additional branches in area H-E-B stores

generations fcu logoDue to the success of its current five partnership locations, Generations Federal Credit Union has announced it has opened two additional branches in area H-E-B Grocery stores located at 9900 Wurzbach (IH-10 at Wurzbach) and 10660 West FM 471 (1604 and Culebra).  The 74-year-old credit union will celebrate the Grand Opening of the Wurzbach branch on Thursday, July 24 and the Culebra Branch Grand Opening on Thursday, July 31.  Mix 96.1’s Russell Rush will be on hand at both events to keep the festivities going.

“For today’s consumer, banking is all about convenience and access. To remain relevant in today’s competitive environment, financial institutions must meet and exceed those needs,” said Christine Voigt, Chief Operations Officer at Generations Federal Credit Union.  “Partnering with H-E-B on our current locations has surpassed our expectations and projections. Not only are the branches turn-key in comparison to stand-alone branches, but they also allow us to directly connect with our members where they live and work.”

At the grand opening events, Generations will be giving away a total of eight (8) HEB gift cards worth $1,800 each.  To be eligible to win, participants must visit one of these two new branches, open a consumer or business checking account, or mail an entry.  The promotion will run until Thursday, July 31 and additional information and official sweepstakes rules are available here.

All Generations H-E-B retail locations are full-service branches where members and potential members can open accounts, request debit cards and apply for loans, among other services.

Branch hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Anyone who lives, works, worships, volunteers or attends school in Bexar County, as well as family of current members, are eligible for membership.

“Generations takes a very tailored approach to banking; we have never subscribed to the one-size fits all theory when it comes to financial services. Whether it’s personalized service or customized products, we believe that making a difference daily in the lives of our members means going above and beyond, every time, every day,” concluded Voigt.
