Metro Credit Union recently celebrated the opening of their new branch located at 334 Watertown St. in Newton with an official ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, August 20 2014.
“We are proud to be in Newton and look forward to expanding our efforts through community outreach, increased financial literacy and becoming a true partner in the neighborhood”
“Metro’s decision to open here has been many years in the making. We have thousands of members in the city and in neighboring communities and have always felt that our expansion here was inevitable. It’s great to finally make it happen,” said Robert M. Cashman, President and CEO. “We are proud to be in Newton and look forward to expanding our efforts through community outreach, increased financial literacy and becoming a true partner in the neighborhood,” Cashman added.
The new location marks Metro’s 15th branch and is located in the village of Nonantum. Metro’s decision to open its branch in the village of Nonantum was based not only the rich history of the area, but also on the residents and community itself. Nonantum is in early stages of revitalization. As a credit union, Metro has been active participants in this process as it has occurred elsewhere in the communities we serve.
This branch opened for business on Monday, August 18, and provides members living in the Newton area convenient banking services.
