Dear Members of Central Maine FCU
Many of you have been asking when we would be reopening our branch at 836 Center Street in Auburn. As you know, the branch has been closed for the last 6 months due to staffing shortages. To date, we have been unsuccessful in hiring staff to fill the open positions we have at both locations. Without enough staff to provide the services you expect, we cannot reopen the branch. So, after many hard discussions between the Board of Directors and management, the decision has been made to close our branch at 836 Center Street permanently.
The decision to close the branch was not an easy one. Members have relied on the branch for its convenience and the ability to not have to cross the bridge to transact business. However, we can’t reopen the branch if we do not have staff to operate it. We understand the frustration you are feeling with this decision as we are frustrated that we cannot serve you, our members, to the best of our ability. While the decision to permanently close the branch has been made, you can still conduct transactions with us through the Shared Branching Network that most, if not all, credit unions in the L/A area are a part of. Check deposits can be made electronically through our Mobile Banking application and withdrawals can be made at any ATM machine. These are all convenient alternatives, so you can still transact most of your banking needs without even stepping foot into Central Maine FCU. We are still here to provide personalized service to you, but just at our 1000 Lisbon Street location.
You may also be wondering what we are going to do with the branch now that it is closed. We have had several discussions with interested parties and will be selling the property. It does not make sense to leave the building vacant in case we decide to reopen it at a later date. Expenses will continue to be paid without any return on the property and with no one inside the building, it can fall into disrepair very quickly adding more expense should repairs occur. It will be sad to see another business in that property that we all have come to rely on and love, but hard times lead to hard decisions and we feel that, unfortunately, it was the best decision to make given the circumstances.
Thank you for your understanding. We still remain your credit union and look forward to serving you for years to come.
