Progress made toward new Chinook Credit Union Branch


    The Chinook Credit Union is getting closer to breaking ground on their new location in Drumheller.

    The Mail broke the story on January 6, 2010 that Chinook Credit Union would be building new, modern branch on the site of the former Home Hardware in Drumheller.
    In May of last year the existing building was demolished to make way for the new branch.
    According to Jim Chisholm, Chinook Credit Union vice president North Region, they are getting close to having a design ready.
    “We are still working with the architect and getting all the design work done,” said Chisholm. “We mean we probably have a week or two yet.”
    After the design work is complete the organization will be able to tender the project and Chisholm said they will make sketches of the new office after tenders close.
    He said they are still on track for the original timeline. The new facility will give the branch more space to offer a full complement of services, including a drive-thru bank machine.
    “It will be really good for the community,” said Chisholm.
