LAGRANGE — Interra Credit Union officials broke ground Aug. 7 on a branch office planned for 309 S. Poplar St. in LaGrange.
Interra serves as the sole credit union provider in LaGrange County with offices currently in Topeka and Shipshewana.
“We look forward to expanding our footprint in LaGrange and better serving our 4,300 members in the county,” Amy Sink, CEO of Interra Credit Union said.
Interra officials promise they will be offering customers a variety of new financial services in the county and deepening their relationship with members.
The roughly 3,200-square-foot, full-service LaGrange office they plan to build in LaGrange will offer customers a flex space concept, personal and technology conveniences, local agribusiness, business development and lending services, mortgage lending and appointment-based meetings with wealth management advisors. Additionally, Interra’s online banking and cash management platforms will provide expanded features and functionalities. The office will include a lobby, drive-thru, night depository and an ATM.
The company is working with architectural firm Design Collaborative, Inc., Fort Wayne, and longtime partner and contractor DJ Construction, Inc., Goshen, to build the facility. The construction company focuses on building commercial, industrial, educational, health care, church and institutional buildings in the area.
“We make every effort to have Interra members hired as sub-contractors,” Joel Richard, senior vice president of member experience, said.
