AMHERST – Renovations are complete at the Community Credit Union in Amherst.
“We thank everybody for their patience, because we had things torn up for a long time, especially out front,” said Gary Corey, Amherst branch manager, on Friday.
Renovations started in March of 2013.
The front area has a rock garden where the parking lot used to be.
“The area that was in front of the building, we removed that because we thought it was a bit of a safety hazard for people who back out into the intersection, even though we’ve been here 40 years and there’s been no accidents,” said Corey.
Parking is now on both sides of the Credit Union.
“We purchased the property next door, and we had that torn down and we expanded our parking area.”
The entrance way is also different.
“The ground was uneven for people to step up from, so we tore all that out and re-ran our ramps.”
Renovations were also done on the inside of the building.
“We wanted to make it more user-friendly,” said Corey. “We re-situated our reception area and moved a couple offices around.”
Corey says he and his team are proud of the renovations and, again, thanks everybody for their patience.
“We’ve been here a long time and we intend to be here for a long time to come,” said Corey.
