FC Lehighton Relocation

First Commonwealth Federal Credit Union has announced the relocation of their Lehighton Financial Center to a new more visible, convenient location in the Carbon Plaza Mall in Spring 2018.

First Commonwealth held the first of several town hall meetings at their current Lehighton location on December 7th to answer questions from members and the community. The First Commonwealth Lehighton team and leadership showcased details of their new financial center which will feature a new, modern look, financial wellness center, social spaces for conversation, financial specialists, extended hours, a stand-alone drive-up in the mall parking lot and café with free coffee.

All current Lehighton Financial Center Associates will continue to serve First Commonwealth members in the Lehighton community at the new location in the Carbon Plaza Mall. First Commonwealth Associates and leaders will continue to address member and community questions, demonstrate new technologies and provide updates on the construction and relocation at future town hall meetings.

Tricia Szurgot, Chief Marketing and Retail Officer, said of the relocation and modernized financial center, "Lehighton area members will continue to see the same friendly faces they've known for years in our new location. Our Lehighton team is excited about the changes, new look and feel, enhanced convenience, extended hours, financial wellness center and our new café. Lehighton is a wonderful community and our employees consider our members family. We want to provide new, friendly spaces for more social interaction and good conversation so we can help members thrive financially. With all of our Lehighton Associates as Certified Financial Wellness Coaches, we’re positioned to help and now we’ll be able to spend more quality time face-to-face with members. This is about helping to improve members’ lives through financial wellness versus just doing transactions".

First Commonwealth supports the community and local economy and is proud to be utilizing the services of local contractor F. J. Lesher General Contractor, LLC as their partner for the new construction, following through with their commitment to "do good in the community" by investing in local businesses. The new financial center will feature a stand-alone, drive-up ITM (Interactive Transaction Machine) kiosk in the parking lot with live Video Associates and extended hours. ITMs are advanced ATMs with the added feature of personalized video assistance so members can complete transactions with First Commonwealth team members outside of regular banking hours.
