North Island Credit Union has opened a third branch in South San Diego County, offering its members added convenience. Rounding out North Island's presence in the South County, the new EastLake branch is located at 884 EastLake Parkway, Suite 1615, in the Village Walk at EastLake, a new 162,000-square-foot, upscale retail development located within the master-planned community of EastLake. The official grand opening of Village Walk at EastLake will be Sept. 15.
This is the third new branch North Island has opened in 2007, bringing the total to 17 in San Diego and Riverside counties.
To celebrate the grand opening, North Island has mailed specials to members and nonmembers in the area, offering market-leading auto and certificate rates for a limited period of time. Additionally, North Island is offering complimentary posters -- while supplies last -- of its newly redesigned signature artwork, "Island Paradise." Members can pick up their "Island Paradise" poster at any North Island branch, including the new Rancho San Diego branch.
"Opening a full-service branch in this area means we can provide a wide variety of financial services for both small businesses and consumers alike in a location convenient to our members," said Geri Dillingham, executive vice president and chief operating officer of North Island. "Emlyn Aurelio, regional manager for the EastLake and Chula Vista branches, is a tremendous asset to our team and I am confident that the new EastLake branch will serve our clients as fully as the others in our network."
North Island Credit Union EastLake branch hours will be Mondays through Thursdays 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Fridays 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
