Douglas County will be home to the first Northern Nevada branch of America First Credit Union, which is scheduled to open on Feb. 16.
The 2,200-square-foot branch — which will be the 17th in Nevada — is located in the former Five Guys Burgers restaurant at 956 Topsy Lane, Ste. 101, in Carson City, within Douglas County.
“We are thrilled to add this spacious branch to expand our footprint in Nevada,” Branch Manager Alexander Wager said in a press release. “Our branch fills a hole in the credit union market. My team and I are enthusiastic about the opportunity to meet new members, welcome prospective members, and contribute positively to the community.”
The lobby will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
The branch will be a full-service location, offering all products and services, including personal accounts, financial counseling services, auto and recreational vehicle loans, mortgages, and business solutions.
The branch is equipped with a spacious lobby that enables social distancing, plexiglass at all teller stations, and floor markers.
AFCU will debut its branch via a virtual tour 8 a.m. on Feb. 16 on the americafirst.com branch locator page and its social platforms.
Viewers will receive a virtual tour of the branch location, meet the branch manager, and learn about amenities and details for the online promotion.
The credit union will also host "a small, socially distanced, private ribbon cutting" on Feb. 19 with the Carson City Chamber of Commerce and city officials to celebrate the expansion in Northern Nevada.
