Dow Credit Union to open new branch in Saginaw

November 14, 2022

Opening in 2023, new Gratiot Road location will expand credit union’s Great Lakes Bay Region presence, help better serve members 


Dow Credit Union has announced plans for a new branch in Saginaw.

“With 54,000 of Dow Credit Union’s 77,000-plus members residing in Michigan’s Great Lakes Bay Region, opening a branch in Saginaw County will better enable us to serve our growing regional member base,” said Dow Credit Union President and CEO Michael Goad. “Having a second location also will reduce operational and service risks that exist with our current single-site model.”

To accomplish these service and operational goals, the credit union recently purchased a former bank branch office at 5420 Gratiot Rd. in Saginaw. Renovations are expected to begin before the end of 2022, with a targeted opening date in the third quarter of 2023. The new facility will feature the new Dow Credit Union name and branding, which officially took effect in September after 85 years as Dow Chemical Employees’ Credit Union.

“As the largest financial institution headquartered in the Great Lakes Bay Region, we are thankful for the support of our growing member base, and we are excited to be able to offer additional in-person branch services,” Goad said.

Dow Credit Union has been a perennial national leader in financial rewards for members, and the expanded membership base has helped fuel that continued performance. The credit union paid Member Giveback rebates and rewards totaling more than $13 million for 2021 and has returned more than $261 million to its members since 1980. In early 2022, Credit Union National Association (CUNA) once again named Dow Credit Union as one of the top credit unions in the country for delivering member value.
