Fidelity Federal Credit Union announces its extension of services to the people of Sandy Springs.
Atlanta, GA (www.allCUnews.com) October 30, 2007 -- Fidelity Federal Credit Union is proud to announce its relocation to Sandy Springs and change in Federal charter to extend its services to the people of Sandy Springs, Georgia. The new federal charter states that Fidelity can accept members who live, work, worship, volunteer and attend school as well as businesses and other legal entities in the City of Sandy Springs.
"We are excited to extend our membership and services to the people of Sandy Springs," says Judy Lehmann, CEO of Fidelity Federal. "Because all of our 'profit' is returned to our members in the form of loans at better rates than most banks, we feel like we can provide a real savings to the community. We are able to beat banks in nearly all categories of loan interest rates because we are nonprofit, and as a result, don't have to pay taxes, turning the savings over to our members."
As of November 15, Fidelity's new locations will be 6690 Roswell Rd, Suite 1100 in the Sandy Springs Crossing shopping center at the corner of Abernathy and Roswell Roads. Fidelity encourages anyone in the Sandy Springs community to stop in and ask to speak to a representative about joining today.
