Northeast Credit Union announced that, in September, it will be relocating its Concord branch from its current location inside of the Cleveland Federal Building to a new location inside the historic Endicott Hotel building at the corner of South Main Street and Pleasant Street. With better parking and easier access, the new location will be a more convenient place for members while also giving the credit union enhanced visibility in a community it has been a part of for over 30 years.
Northeast Credit Union President and CEO Peter J. Kavalauskas states, “We are very excited to be opening our newest branch this fall at the historic Endicott Hotel building and partnering with CATCH Neighborhood Housing to support the economy and culture of downtown Concord. The new Northeast Credit Union branch will be a full-service branch with a 24-hour ATM and friendly and knowledgeable staff committed to providing the best possible service to members. We look forward to continuing the Northeast Credit Union tradition of helping people achieve their financial goals while also supporting the local community from this new location in downtown Concord.”
In discussing the importance of the historic building in the community and its selection for the credit union’s newest branch, Kavalauskas states, “Times have certainly changed since the early days of the 20th century when the Endicott Hotel welcomed travelers from the railroad stations. From developments in industry and technology to changes in local neighborhoods and across the state, the Endicott Hotel building has stood as a highly visible landmark in the community. With its founding over 75 years ago, Northeast Credit Union has witnessed many of the same changes over the years and appreciates the historical significance of the Endicott Hotel building. It is wonderful to see it continue its long-standing presence on Main Street and we share CATCH Neighborhood Housing’s enthusiasm to see the Endicott Hotel serving as a driver of commerce and culture for the local community once again. We are truly honored to be a part of the incredible community collaboration that is restoring and revitalizing the architectural and historic treasure that is the Endicott Hotel.”
Rosemary M. Heard, President of CATCH Neighborhood Housing added, “All of us at CATCH are so thrilled that Northeast Credit Union is one of the first tenants of the new Endicott Hotel. Their interest in the building as an historic landmark aligns perfectly with our vision for the Endicott, and we are pleased to help Northeast Credit Union bring their longstanding tradition of community involvement to prominence in downtown Concord.”
