ROANOKE, Va. – At a time when many financial institutions are closing their doors and some are even leaving the Valley Region, Freedom First Credit Union has opened another new branch in Roanoke. The Tanglewood branch is located at 4203 Electric Road, across from Panera at the intersection with Ogden Road. Freedom First celebrated with a ribbon-cutting November 17. People are encouraged to stop in by Friday 11/21 to enter to win one of dozens of gift cards from local shops and restaurants the Credit Union is giving away.

“We have been looking for a suitable site in that part of the county for some time,” said President/CEO Paul Phillips. “Many of our consumer and business members live and work in Southwest County and this is a great opportunity to make banking with Freedom First even more convenient for them.” 

In the past year, Freedom First opened branches in Daleville and Roanoke’s West End neighborhood, and relocated its Towers branch to a larger space, also adding a drive-up ATM there. The growing credit union has also recently expanded its mortgage team and its business services. 

“Our members enjoy the convenience that our online banking and custom mobile apps offer,” said Phillips, “but a brick-and-mortar branch is invaluable when you want the expertise of a personal banker.” 

The branch lobby is open Monday-Friday 9-5, with drive-thru hours until 7 on weeknights and 9-1 on Saturdays. The branch also includes a drive-up ATM that's free to Freedom First members.
