Date Set for 1st Financial’s St. Charles Branch Relocation

1st Financial St. Charles Branch Rendering


UPDATE: Due to construction delays, the St. Charles branch move has been delayed to the end of September with an official new branch open date of Monday, October 2. The new branch Ribbon Cutting Ceremony has been moved to Wednesday, October 4 at 10 am.

St. Charles, Mo. (August 17, 2017) – 1st Financial Federal Credit Union, a 30,000 member certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), will relocate its St. Charles branch to 1721 Zumbehl Road on Sept. 18.

The St. Charles branch, currently located at 1550 Country Club Plaza, is scheduled to move after the close of the business day on Sept. 16. All services will immediately shift to the new location at 1721 Zumbehl Road and be open for business on Sept. 18.

The new branch design was inspired by the 1st Financial member base and their heritage in the St. Charles community. The design is focused on highlighting the enhanced member service which features teller pods, for an improved retail experience, and a new member lounge that includes a coffee-refreshment bar. A welcome reception greets members as they enter the space, adding a personal experience the moment a member steps through the doors.

The drive-thru, located behind the teller pods, is designed to alleviate noise and provide greater operational efficiency. Several offices with glass sliding doors will allow for more natural light to enter the main lobby, while providing the necessary acoustic privacy needed in a financial institution.

The community is invited to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sept. 27 at 10 am.

1st Financial Federal Credit Union is a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and the 2016 Community Credit Union of the Year by Credit Union National Association (CUNA). For more information about 1st Financial Federal Credit Union and the credit union difference, visit
