Sarasota, FL – MIDFLORIDA Credit Union has announced the opening of its Sarasota branch located at 544 S. Washington Blvd., Sarasota, FL. This location opened on May 23.
“As we continue to expand our footprint throughout the Tampa Bay area and down the Gulf coast, we are excited to open our first Sarasota location. This branch will help us bridge service gaps from Tampa through Bradenton, Cape Coral and beyond. We see a lot of crossover traffic throughout the Tampa market and expanding our number of physical locations adds more convenience not only for current members but also increases our visibility to non-members as they consider their banking options,” said Vanessa Hernandez, MIDFLORIDA’s Chief of Retail Delivery.
As one of 60 branches throughout the state – with more to come in 2022 – this new 6,121 square foot Sarasota branch features the Credit Union’s signature 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. extended drive-thru hours and full-service Saturday hours, plus face-to-face banking, instant-issue debit and credit cards, a drive-up ATM, three drive-thru lanes, and safe deposit boxes. The space also provides offices for mortgage and commercial lending.
“When people think of MIDFLORIDA, convenience and accessibility come to mind. While digital banking is all the rage, we strongly believe that providing in-person service sets us apart from the competition. People still want to physically talk to someone when it comes to their money. Our strategically placed branches complement our ongoing digital banking experiences that provide our members with the best of both worlds,” Hernandez added.
Grand Opening Celebration
The community is invited to meet the local branch staff at a Grand Opening celebration slated for Friday, June 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees may enjoy free lunch and special door prizes including an Oculus Virtual Reality Game, Paddleboard and more including gift cards to local businesses.
