VSECU Celebrates Grand Opening of New Branch in Downtown Bennington

Benn grand open

We’re celebrating the Grand Opening of our new branch in Bennington on Tuesday, June 9, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Now located at 194 North Street next to the Rite Aid® store our new branch, which opened for business on May 1, invites the community to join members and staff for the Grand Opening Celebration, with branch tours, refreshments, ribbon cutting and recognition.

We also partnered with the American Red Cross to organize a blood drive in the parking lot the day of the event. Participants can walk in or schedule an appointment in advance on the blood drive page.

The branch tour will also introduce downtown Bennington’s first proposed co-working space, The Lightning Jar. This space will serve entrepreneurs, startups, small businesses, students, remote workers and other professionals in Southern Vermont and neighboring states. Members will share resources and benefit from a community, social, collaborative and professional environment, all at a low cost.

We’re collaborating with locally minded individuals from the business, education, civic and government sectors in Bennington and Vermont to develop this concept with the goal of bringing greater economic development and prosperity to the region.

“We are thrilled to be a bigger part of the Bennington community, by offering an alternative to traditional banking options and serving our existing and new members in the area,” said Yvonne Garand, SVP Business Development.

Schedule of activities for Tuesday, June 9:

  • Welcome and Branch Tours: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
  • Ribbon Cutting and Recognition: 11:00 AM
  • American Red Cross Blood Drive: 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM

The new Bennington Branch hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with a deposit-taking ATM available seven days a week.
