From Chuck

Dear Members,

It’s an exciting time at Coastal as we head into fall. It seems like it’s often the busiest time of year, and this year is no different. We have a new branch getting ready to open next month, and have another new location that we haven’t even previously talked about. We also have a number of member and public events coming up over the next few weeks. 

Coastal Family Day

Our biggest event of the year is back by very popular demand… Coastal Family Day is returning for a 3rd year!

This year’s event will take place Saturday, October 12th at WakeMed Soccer Park. It features rides, games, food and entertainment. This year, we’ve expanded the rides and games, with more options for older kids.  

The event runs from 3:30 – 6:30 PM, and includes a ticket to the NC Courage soccer match at 7 PM. It should be an exciting game, as the Courage will be looking to wrap up their third straight NWSL Shield and head into the playoffs on a high note.  

Weaver Street Market

Congratulations to our friends at Weaver Street Market on the  opening of their new downtown Raleigh location.  This is their 4th store, and their first in Raleigh, located at 404 West Hargett Street.

We’re excited that there’s another cooperative in town, for a few reasons. Most important: we’ve partnered with them to put a new dual function teller machine inside the store. The PTM will be located close to the checkouts, and will be available starting the last week in September.   We will offer 7-7/7 teller service just like at our branches, plus the ATM is available to anyone, any time the store is open.

I’d like to especially thank everyone on our team for being able to act quickly when this opportunity arose. This is the first downtown location for Coastal, and our first opportunity to position a standalone PTM as a micro-branch.   The location is convenient for existing members and Weaver Street Market patrons alike.   

Wealth Management Awards

Finally, I want to quickly congratulate our Wealth Management team for collecting a trio of awards at a recent industry conference. The overall program was recognized for building partnerships with branches to ensure that members are aware of our services. Additionally, two of our advisors earned Pacesetter awards for meeting goals and providing outstanding client service.  This is a great example of all of our various departments working closely together to ensure that our members various financial needs are being met.

I hope to see you all very soon!
