As of Wednesday, March 18, our Shreveport branch is permanently closed.
We previously communicated to Shreveport members that the branch would permanently close in May. However, to minimize risk of exposure to illness and due to state and federal restrictions on the amount of people that can gather in one area, we are closing the branch earlier than expected.
Why is this Branch Closing?
Members have come to expect great service from Pelican, and we are honored to provide it each and every day! To live up to those expectations, we have developed some of the best mobile banking services and invested in partnerships that allow you to access your account at no cost anywhere, anytime.
This added convenience of transacting business without coming into a branch has become so popular with members that it has even reduced the usage of our Shreveport branch.
In addition to continuing to service your accounts and loans, Pelican will continue to serve our Shreveport Select Employer Group partners (SEGs), participate in Highland Financial Ministry’s Hand-Up Loan Program, provide Financial Wellness to local organizations, and support the community.
This closure will not affect your accounts or loans with Pelican, and we have several more ways for you to access your Pelican accounts and loans in-person and online at no cost to you.
