 How is the South Ridge Secondary doing?

April 17, 2018Members Cooperative Credit Union shares its reasons for a possible move.  Speaking for MCCU, Lara Wilkinson said, "We have a lot of unused space in our current facility, and it isn't beneficial to our members to maintain a building that size, when the member service areas are a much smaller segment of the building footprint. The current building is also located in an area that we've been told isn't especially convenient for a lot of people. We are always keeping our eyes open for opportunities that make sense, and when the property became available on Highway 33, we knew it was a rare find. We purchased the land with the intention of building a facility that is smaller than the current one, and focused on the member service-side of things, rather than on housing back office staff."

She likened the potential new building to their newer locations in Sandstone, Aitkin, and Duluth- BlueStone, Duluth-Miller Hill.  She called them "innovative, striking facilities that operate in a smart-yet-friendly way."

"We are excited and hopeful that things will move forward. Cloquet is a community that's very dear to us, and we can't wait to share our new facility, once it's all done!" Lara added.
