By about this time next year, Mid American Credit Union hopes to open a new branch at the southwest corner of Kellogg and Oliver.

“We haven’t officially acquired the land yet,” says Mike Welli, vice president of marketing and advocacy.

The credit union is interested in the corner, which is an empty lot right now, for a number of reasons.

“One of the things that we like about it is the access,” Welli says.

Also, he says there’s the opportunity for great signage.

When Mid American merged with the Veterans Administration Credit Union, it acquired its branch at 804 S. Oliver.

“This will replace that branch,” Welli says of the new site. “This will allow us to significantly upgrade.”

The existing branch, one of five the credit union has of 10 across the state, is small and does not have a drive-through or ATM. The new branch will.

Welli expects the new branch will be between 3,500 and 5,000 square feet.

Look for more information as the deal progresses, he says.

“We would certainly like … to have something probably this time next year ready to open.”
