Municipal Credit Union (MCU) has expanded its footprint in Queens with the opening of its new branch in Springfield Gardens.

Congressmember Gregory Meeks, Assemblymember William Scarborough, Councilmember Leroy Comrie, and District Leader Elmer Blackburne joined MCU president/CEO Kam Wong and board chair Mark S. Brantley in cutting the ribbon on the new full-service Springfield Gardens MCU branch, which is located at 134-66 Springfield Boulevard.

The Springfield Gardens branch is MCU’s second branch in Queens and first in the southern part of the borough. MCU’s other Queens branch is in Elmhurst. It is also the credit union’s first branch system-wide to have an e-banking center. The e-banking center allows members to conduct a wide range of banking transactions, including transferring funds between accounts, checking account status and applying for loans.

“MCU is excited to open its Springfield Gardens location,” said MCU President and CEO Kam Wong.”We have many members who work and live in this part of Queens, and our new branch will finally allow us to provide them with convenient and excellent service. We look forward to continuing and growing our relationship with the community and our members here.”

The Springfield Gardens branch is a full-service branch, offering teller service, staff to help members with a wide range of financial transactions and advice, 24/7 ATMs, and the credit union’s first e-banking center. The branch is open Monday to Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
