Scott Credit Union officially celebrated the opening of its new branch in Ballpark Village in St. Louis with a ceremonial ribbon cutting on Monday.
Located at the base of The PwC Pennant Building at the corner of Eighth Street and Cardinal Way, Scott Credit Union is the first retail tenant to join the new office building which opened in the fourth quarter of 2019 as part of the second phase expansion of Ballpark Village.
“We are pleased to officially mark the opening of our first branch in downtown St. Louis,” Scott Credit Union President and CEO Frank Padak said during the ceremony. “We are even more excited to be part of Ballpark Village and to expand our partnership with the St. Louis Cardinals.”
The 1,200-square-foot location is a full-service branch and is equipped with a walk-up ATM that is available from outside the branch during off hours. The location also features office space to allow staff to meet with members when they need consultation about home loans or investments.
“We’re incredibly excited to announce Scott Credit Union’s opening and welcome them to Ballpark Village,” said Mike LaMartina, chief revenue officer for Ballpark Village. “Scott Credit Union will be a great new amenity for our office workers, residents and visitors to Ballpark Village.”
The branch’s design and visibility aims to create brand awareness for Scott Credit Union in the Missouri market. The Ballpark Village location is a high-tech marketing showcase with a digital display wall, interactive teller machines and conversation spaces. The location features “friendly and energetic member engagement specialists to assist members with their banking needs, the credit union stated.
“We are proud to be part of this neighborhood and all of the action it will bring to downtown St. Louis,” Padak added. “We are looking forward to serving the people who live and work here, as well as those visiting for an event in the future.”
