Arlington Community Federal Credit Union (ACFCU) announced today that it will close its Ballston Branch, located at 4121 Wilson Boulevard, on December 31, 2019. The branch has been open since 2013.
The credit union will open a new branch in late 2020 to replace the Ballston location, with a commitment to finding a more modern facility to serve its growing membership.
The Ballston staff will relocate to ACFCU’s Columbia Pike and Glebe Road branches until the opening.
“Our team will miss serving members in Ballston, where we have been proud to be part of this neighborhood’s exciting growth,” stated Karen L. Rosales, ACFCU’s CEO. “We look forward to opening a new, innovative branch to continue our mission to empower the financial lives of our members in Arlington and beyond.”
As Arlington’s credit union, ACFCU supports the County through partnerships with non-profit organizations, financial literacy programs and in-school branches in Arlington Public Schools, and financial wellness seminars open to the public.
Arlingtonians have shown their love for ACFCU’s phenomenal service and community focus, voting the credit union “Best Community Bank” in Arlington Magazine’s Best of Arlington 2018/2019 and 2016/2017 polls, and “Best Bank” in Sun Gazette’s readers’ poll in 2019 and 2017–with a 2018 Sun Gazette award for Rosales as “Best Banker.” ACFCU also won the Arlington Chamber of Commerce’s “Best Large Business 2019” award, as well as “Federal Credit Union of the Year” in 2015 from the National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions (NAFCU).
