MSUFCU Completes Renovations at Downtown and Sparrow Branch
EAST LANSING, Mich. — MSU Federal Credit Union recently completed renovations on its Downtown Lansing branch, located at 104 S. Washington Square in Lansing, Michigan, and its Sparrow branch within the Sparrow Professional Building at 1200 E. Michigan Ave. in Lansing, Michigan.
Renovations to the Downtown Lansing and Sparrow branches were made to offer visitors a modern, streamlined look and layout in which they can complete their personal and business-related transactions. Rather than traditional teller lines, offices, and a reception desk, visitors are welcomed to a station, a one-on-one space where the visitor interacts directly with a Credit Union employee and can have all requests completed and questions answered without moving to another space or employee for additional services. The new, open layouts provide all the same features as the branches’ previous layout — such as card printing, account transactions, new accounts, loan applications, and more — with the convenience of accomplishing each step in one spot.
“The new branch layout engages members and helps foster relationships. The branches now better reflect the brand image and culture of the Credit Union, while also providing members with an enhanced experience each time they visit the Credit Union,” remarked April Clobes, MSUFCU’s President/CEO.
Similar renovations were also completed this year at MSUFCU’s Union branch in Michigan State University’s Union building and will be implemented in the upcoming Grand Rapids branch location.
