Mt. Hermon Branch Groundbreaking

Tuesday, December 17, 2013, marked a very special moment for your Piedmont Credit Union. We celebrated the groundbreaking for our first branch in Pittsylvania County. The new branch will be located on the corner of Matthew Circle and Franklin Turnpike.

Representatives from P.W. Campbell were on hand with hard hats and golden shovels. P.W. Campbell is the firm chosen to oversee the construction of the branch. They will contract more than 20 local firms, employing many local craftsmen, plumbers, electricians, etc. purchasing the majority of the construction materials locally as well. The target completion date is late May, early June. The building will be approximately 4,500 square feet.  The branch will have a community room to handle credit union functions, as well as member and community events and meetings. It will be a full-service branch with a drive-up ATM, two drive-thru lanes, lending and member services.  Photographs from the ceremony and renderings of the new building may be found on our Facebook page here.
