The Dirt: STCU growth spurt includes branch in Airway Heights

From staff reports

STCU will open an Airway Heights branch in 2017, the Liberty Lake-based credit union said this week.

Construction will begin in the fall at Hayford Road and U.S. Highway 2. It will be built at Hayford Crossing, a development by West Partners LLC that also will include Grocery Outlet and Dollar Tree stores.

The branch will have 3,800 square feet of space and drive-thru banking.

STCU has a number of projects underway in addition to the planned Airway Heights branch. The credit union is remodeling space at 401 Front Ave. in Coeur d’Alene for a branch that should open late this year. A new branch in Qualchan, at 4233 S. Cheney-Spokane Road, opens Monday. And the STCU downtown branch will move from the skywalk level of Crescent Court to newly constructed space in River Park Square – a location the credit union will share with the Rocket Bakery – in October.

When these projects are completed, STCU will have 21 branch locations in Eastern Washington and North Idaho, the credit union said in a news release. STCU’s membership has grown to 156,000 members from 100,000 in 2011, and it will employ 600 when open positions are filled, the release said.

Golden Rule Brake adding service bays

Golden Rule Brake, at 815 N. Pines Road in Spokane Valley, is adding 1,400 square feet of space and two more service bays. Lexington Commercial is doing the work.

The additional space will give the business five service bays and nearly 4,000 square feet of total space.

Dallas Low, owner of the third-generation family business, said in a news release that the expansion will cut wait times for customers at that outlet.

Golden Rule has two other locations in Spokane and has been in business for more than 60 years.
