Bethpage, NY (PRWEB) March 03, 2014
Bethpage Federal Credit Union, New York State’s largest credit union and Long Island’s leading community financial institution, recently celebrated the grand opening of one of its newest branches on Long Island, within the King Kullen supermarket located at 231 W. Merrick Road in Valley Stream.
The Valley Stream branch marks the credit union’s fourth branch location inside a King Kullen. Bethpage’s first King Kullen branch was opened in King Kullen’s Levittown location. Subsequent branches were opened in Levittown, Bay Shore and now Valley Stream. Bethpage currently has 27 Long Island branches, with 15 located in Nassau County and 12 located in Suffolk County.
“Bethpage and King Kullen share a common goal of supporting the Long Island community. Bethpage branches housed inside King Kullen supermarkets provide an invaluable asset to customers, offering a great convenience for busy shoppers,” said Kirk Kordeleski, president and CEO of Bethpage. “We look forward to working closely with Valley Stream residents, all of whom are invited to do their banking inside the branch and take advantage of the unmatched credit union difference.”
“King Kullen welcomes Bethpage to its Valley Stream store,” remarked Brian Cullen, co-president of King Kullen. “We’ve always enjoyed a great relationship with Bethpage. I’m confident our customers will find it convenient and helpful to have a full-service branch right where they shop.”
The new bilingual branch within the Valley Stream store employs seven employees in a 456 square foot location. Fernando Rebellon is the new Valley Stream branch manager. Hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday-Friday; 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday; and 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Sunday. Bethpage is one of Long Island’s most convenient financial institutions.
