American Heritage Federal Credit Union has opened a branch in Quakertown. It's the first branch in the borough for the credit union that has 32 branches throughout Bucks and Montgomery counties and Philadelphia.
Staying true to its brand, the branch, like the others, is decorated with pieces of American heritage, said president and CEO Bruce Foulke. They include a pair of John F. Kennedy Jr.'s baby booties, a land grant signed by President James Madison and a shirt worn by Will Smith in the movie “Men in Black.”
“The idea is that the member has this experience,” Foulke said.
He said each branch has about a half-dozen historical artifacts that are rotated among the branches every few months.
The branch also features an online café, where people can check their online banking or surf the Web while waiting for an appointment.
Besides the tellers, which members can visit in individual offices for privacy, the branch also has PAT – the credit union's personal automated teller machines.
Foulke said they differ from traditional ATMs in that they are linked to a phone and video monitor so a member can talk to a teller at the credit union's main office from the terminal.
He said it links the convenience of an automated transmission with the personal touch of having a teller's assistance.
The grand opening was Feb. 12 at 238 S. West End Blvd., Quakertown. For more information, call 215-969-0777.
