Free Cash for Pelican State Credit Union Members at Grand Opening
SHREVEPORT – It pays to be a member of Pelican State Credit Union! To celebrate the relocation of its Shreveport branch, Pelican gave its members an opportunity to grab some fast cash in a money booth! 119 members grabbed a total of $2,653 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Thursday, August 27.
The money booth was part of the branch's Grand Opening Celebration. Local business leaders, residents, dignitaries and representatives from the Chamber of Commerce showed their support for the credit union by attending a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony led by Pelican CEO Jeffrey K. Conrad and Shreveport Chamber of Commerce President Richard H. Bremer.
Pelican's new Shreveport branch is led by Branch Manager Scott Fulghum, and is located at 284 Southfield Road. The branch boasts more space, more parking and more representatives than the credit union's former location in Towne Oak Square Shopping Center.
"Our employees and members struggled with parking at our former location. Additionally it was a challenge to find the branch because it was tucked away in the corner of the shopping center. Now, we are proud to offer increased visibility, ample parking, a larger space with increased privacy and a 24-hour ATM," Conrad added.
Several businesses in Shreveport and its surrounding areas have partnered with Pelican to provide credit union membership eligibility as a free benefit to their employees. These businesses include University Health, Volunteers of America, New Horizons Independent Living and many others.
Pelican's Shreveport Branch is open from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday - Friday. Pelican is a full service financial institution offering interest-bearing free checking accounts, a wide variety of loans, free credit counseling and much more.
Shreveport members can also utilize Pelican's Financial Resource Center (FRC) located inside the Highland Center at 520 Olive Street. This full-service location specializes in one-on-one financial education and free credit counseling. The FRC is open from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Thursday.
