The Monksland branch of Athlone Credit Union is to open this Saturday October 6.
The new sub-office, to be located opposite SuperValu in Monksland, will be officially opened on Saturday at 3pm.
The office will replicate the full range of services provided by Athlone Credit Union at their Northgate Street premises. The provisional opening times for the new Monksland office are Tuesday 9am to noon, Wednesday 10am to 6pm with one hour closed for lunch, and Friday 9am to noon, though these may be changed subject to demand.
With an estimated 5,000 members in the Monksland area and west of the Shannon, the lending institution has been planning the expansion for some time, with the office fit-out completed in recent weeks.
The new office has ample parking, and joins a range of other services in the area including a supermarket, hotel, pharmacy, and coffee shop.
Saturday’s launch will be followed by Athlone Credit Union’s monthly car draw.
