Cornerstone Community Federal Credit Union, the largest locally owned credit union in Western New York, will celebrate the grand opening of its newest location on Wednesday, Jan. 23. The new branch is located at 721 Center St., in the Village of Lewiston.
All members of the community are invited to attend and take part in the special promotions. Guests can enter to win a five-day, four-night cruise for two. For the first 200 new members who open a free active checking account with direct deposit at the Lewiston branch, Cornerstone CFCU will put $75 into their accounts. When a member applies and receives a secured loan between now and March 29, Cornerstone CFCU will also put 1 percent cash back into the member's savings account.
