Mormon-Oriented Las Vegas Credit Union Opens New Branch
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- Ensign Federal Credit Union, an LDS-oriented credit
union in Las Vegas, has opened a new branch in the eastern part of the city.
The credit union is also giving its image a makeover to go along with its
new location, which it says changes the way banking is done.
To make life nicer for its patrons, the credit union features a juice bar,
an Internet Cafe and a Kids Center that includes a computer for children to
use. But the new location's facilities are not limited to amenities. It also
features an investment kiosk where patrons can check their stock portfolio,
a home center, and private closing rooms where loan and other complex and
confidential transactions can be completed. And, of course, it also has the
basics of most banks: drive-up banking, a 24-hour drive-up ATM and a variety
of financial services, including the transaction center, where cashiers take
The President and CEO of the credit union, Diane Whitaker, says that
remodeling on the credit union's Northwest location begins this month. That
location, the credit union's first, will be retrofitted to provide the same
services available in the new, East, location. Ensign Federal Credit Union
has been in business since 1961 and now has over $80 million in assets.
