Envision Financial opens the doors to new Cloverdale branch

The new Brickyard Station branch has a modern, open concept design, meaning teller wickets are gone.

A new financial institution has opened in Surrey’s historic town centre, promising to bring a modern, more personal approach to banking.

Envision Financial’s new branch at Brick Yard Station in Cloverdale opened Aug. 4.

The new location at 17433 56 Avenue is a 2,174 square-foot, full-service branch, offering retail and business banking, along with financial planning and investment services.

“Cloverdale is a fast-growing and dynamic community in one of Canada’s fastest growing cities,” said branch manager Kay Gandham.

The branch has a modern, open concept design, meaning teller wickets are gone. Instead, there are advisors who will approach members when they arrive at the branch.

“We take pride in creating a simple, more personal, banking experience,” Grandham said.

Envision Financial is a division of First West Credit Union, the third largest credit union in B.C., with 53 branches and 40 insurance offices.

A grand opening is planned for Saturday, Aug. 15. The event includes a free barbecue. An official ribbon cutting will be held late next month.
