LOGAN, Utah – July 16, 2021 – Utah’s largest credit union, America First Credit Union, opened a new branch location on July 12, replacing the North Logan Walmart Branch which closed on July 10. Located off 1400 North in Logan, it’s the first branch in the city located in a stand-alone building.
The 3,200-square-foot building includes multiple teller stations, coin machine, cash advance equipment, instant issue card machine, cash recyclers, and 24-hour drive-up ATM. A complete suite of financial services, such as membership enrollment, mortgages, notarization, deposits, withdrawals, and loans, are available to members. It’s located at 127 East 1400 North in Logan and operates Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A financial counselor will be on site at the branch to be a resource for students and other members who are looking to improve their financial literacy, manage student loans, and improve their financial security. This one-stop shop offers students a route to financial success and support. America First team members will also be on hand to assist members with new checking/savings accounts as well as personal and business loans.
Wayne Jorgensen, who has worked for America First for 24 years, serves as the location’s branch manager. An avid lover of all things Aggies, Jorgensen has been involved in Cache Valley as a leader and speaker for various youth groups and personal finance classes at Utah State University. As manager of the not-for-profit cooperative institution, he embodies the credit union’s value of people helping people.
“Our new location provides community members and students with one-stop access to our friendly financial experts and superior services,” said Jorgensen. “Like many in our community, I have deep family ties to Cache Valley and have a great fondness for the people here. I love helping my neighbors, friends and members in the community succeed in their financial journey.”
Prize giveaway for an ultimate tailgate package—includes Camp Chef Smoker, pellets, Hey Grill Hey rubs and BBQ sauces, meat claws, Saranoni blanket, Utah State fan items, grill kit, and $100 to a local butcher shop for a meat package—is planned as part of the credit union’s grand opening celebration on July 16. Grand opening festivities will take place July 12–16.
