Georgia United's new Chamblee branch celebrates grand opening and ribbon cutting

Jun 11, 2024

DULUTH, GA - DeKalb Chamber of Commerce CEO and President Frankie Atwater, Sr. and Chamblee Mayor Brian K. Mock joined Georgia United Credit Union for a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on June 7 celebrating the credit union’s new Chamblee branch at bustling Chamblee Plaza.

“We are extremely excited to be in Chamblee and in this community,” said Georgia United Chief Experience Officer Todd Lambright. “Cutting this ribbon today symbolizes growth not just for Georgia United but also this community. We are proud to be a part of it, we are proud to be here and to represent our members here – and our potential new members.”

The 1,400-square-foot storefront branch, nestled between Publix and Einstein Bros. Bagels, had a soft opening on March 13. It is more compact than the typical Georgia United branch’s footprint but is a full-service, one-stop-shop for members, featuring two state-of-the-art ATM+ terminals inside and one outside. The exterior ATM + station provides members 24/7 access to their finances – extending banking hours beyond the physical branch, allowing access to in-branch services such as depositing cash, withdrawing cash in multiple denominations or making deposits even when the doors are locked.

“This branch is what we deem a micro-branch,” said Lambright. “If you walk in you can see it’s small, but they say dynamite comes in small packages.”

The Chamblee facility incorporates contemporary design and layout elements of the organization’s branch transformation strategic program that is redefining the banking experience for members. Leveraging the latest technology, Georgia United continues to deliver its renowned personalized service.

The new branch is a successor of sorts to the former North Atlanta branch on Tilly Mill Road, approximately 2.3 miles away, and Mayor Mock is glad Georgia United chose to serve members in the area by operating in Chamblee.

“I try not to miss a ribbon cutting, and it’s never for the photo op, it’s for the genuineness of the fact that we have a new business opening in the city,” said Mock. “It means the city is going in the right direction. We are doing some good things here and this area is really growing. And we are proud to have Georgia United part of our community.”  

Georgia United is committed to building strong community ties in the Chamblee area, including participating in and sponsoring local community events, such as the inaugural Chamblee Art Fest in April and March’s Cherry Blossom Festival and 5K in neighboring Brookhaven.
