BECU Expands Footprint with New Financial Centers in Tacoma and Shoreline

BECU, based in Seattle, Washington, recently announced it will open financial centers next year in Tacoma and in the Ballinger neighborhood of Shoreline. Both locations will join over 60 existing financial centers serving BECU’s more than 1.4 million members.

At the Pierce County Financial Center in Tacoma and Ballinger Neighborhood Financial Center, BECU employees will provide financial advice and expertise as well as one-on-one support for opening accounts and transactions involving ATMs, online banking, and mobile banking. They will also assist members with mortgages, small business services, investment and trust services, and have access to technology designed to meet members’ needs more quickly and efficiently. In addition, the Pierce County Financial Center will be one of just five BECU locations to offer teller services upon opening.

“Expanding BECU’s presence in Tacoma and Shoreline is in direct response to the evolving needs of our members in Pierce and King counties. As we continue to welcome more members to the BECU family, our previous nearby locations were at capacity and we knew we had more to offer,” said BECU’s Vice President of Retail Delivery Debbie McLeod. “As a financial cooperative, BECU works hard to find locations where our members may be underserved or in communities where we have opportunities to grow. We look forward to delivering exceptional service and showing everyone the benefits of being a credit union member.”

The Pierce County Financial Center will be nearly 7,500 square feet and join a second financial center in Tacoma. It will also join surrounding locations in University Place, Bonney Lake, Puyallup, and Gig Harbor (opening early next year) to serve more than 186,000 members who live in Pierce County.

The Ballinger Neighborhood Financial Center will be located on the corner of Ballinger Way Northeast and assist over 18,000 members located in the city of Shoreline. At nearly 4,500 square feet, the financial center will feature BECU’s innovative “teller-less” layout, which empowers members to access their accounts in the ways most convenient to them. BECU employees will also be available to assist members by appointment, as needed.
