NH Federal Credit Union returning to Main Street Concord
CONCORD — All of the changes coming to Main Street, Concord, have not scared New Hampshire Federal Credit Union away. Instead, the $240 million credit union has decided to resume its place in the heart of Concord by opening a full-service office on 47 Main St., a few doors down from their current Main Street ATM.
NH Federal Credit Union once leased space on North Main Street, when the Credit Union still only served state and University of New Hampshire employees and their families. The main office, on Airport Road in Concord, was built in 1973, accommodating state employees working on Hazen Drive in Concord.
Since the 1980s, however, NH Federal Credit Union has expanded to serve other employer groups in Concord, including Concord Hospital, Lincoln Financial, NE Delta Dental, the City of Concord and Merrimack County employees. The credit union said it plans to keep the Airport Road office open.
