The Olympia Brewery may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of banking, but O Bee Credit Union wants to change that. A leader in providing innovative financial solutions for more than 60 years, O Bee announced today the opening of their newest branch is a unique blend of brewpub and financial service center in Tenino.
O Bee’s rich history as the original credit union of the Olympia Brewery is reflected in the interior of the new building. It features a brewpub aesthetic including repurposed wood, a transaction bar accented with brass rails and local beer taps, chalkboard signage and a beautiful arched ceiling highlighted with color-changing LED lights. Historic photos of Tenino and the Olympia Brewery are displayed throughout the new branch. Our brewery history has always been part of our culture, but this building absolutely embraces our roots. “The pub atmosphere is reminiscent of the brewery tasting room where the community met and workers gathered after the end of a shift”, said James Collins, CEO. The new building offers additional services to the people of Tenino such as a drive-thru window, new ATM, and safety deposit boxes as well as Bernstein Bears Cub Accounts, an innovative rewards points program and competitive loan rates.
O Bee Credit Union will host a community-wide grand opening celebration on Saturday, November 4 from 1 pm to 4p m. The new building is located a 149 Sussex Avenue in Tenino.
