Decatur Branch Relocation

New Decatur Branch location

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be relocating our Decatur Branch to larger, more convenient facilities. The existing branch, which is located at 245 West Ponce de Leon Avenue, will be moved to a larger location in the lobby level of the commercial building at 160 Clairemont Avenue. Completion of the move is expected this spring. This new branch will house a full member service team, including professionals to assist with Home, Auto and Personal Loan needs. The new location also offers additional parking, three convenient drive-through lanes and both a walk-up and drive-up ATM. Stay tuned for more details on the Decatur Branch page of our website.
