Arlington, Texas – Dec. 6, 2021 – Texas Trust Credit Union officially opened the doors of its newest branch at Fish Creek Preserve at South Carrier Parkway and I-20. This is Texas Trust’s third branch in Grand Prairie and 20th in the state. This is also the first new branch the credit union has built from the ground up since 2005.
Construction of the 4,280-square-foot building began in February. Financial services at the branch include checking and deposit accounts, car and recreational vehicle loans, low-interest credit cards, home loans for new purchases and refinancing, insurance, and retirement planning. The branch is managed by Sierra Garzes, who has served the community at all of Texas Trust’s Grand Prairie locations since 2014.
The branch has three drive-thru lanes, which will offer two-way video for members to communicate with branch staff inside the credit union. This is the first Texas Trust branch to use video in the drive thru instead of the traditional drive up window. The branch also offers a community room with capacity for up to 30 people, a coin counting machine, safe deposit boxes, a partner office, and convertible outdoor space for small events.
“This is a perfect location for a large number of our members who live within three to five miles of the Fish Creek Preserve,” said Jim Minge, CEO of Texas Trust Credit Union. “The personal touch our members receive at the branch is what makes us different from other financial institutions.”
Minge added, “We know our members value the in person face-to-face relationships with our branch staff, which is why we added this strategically located branch.”
Branch hours are Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Drive-thru lanes will be open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
Keeley Construction of St. Louis and Oculus Inc., designed and managed the building project.
The exterior of the building features a limestone façade and adobe brick with weathered wood accents highlighted with metal and glass. The metal and glass will glow with a “Texas Trust Blue” light during the night. The interior features bright and polished aesthetics warmed with wood accents.
