Three years ago, First Alliance Credit Union announced plans for a new to Rochester concept. At the time, the credit union announced its new branch would have an open floor concept and share space with other locally owned businesses.

A year later in 2020, First Alliance Commons opened its doors with partners Moka and Great Harvest Bread Company. A grand opening celebration for a new tenant is planned for this Saturday, August 27th.

The First Alliance Commons branch design allows us to provide our members a greater level of convenience and high-quality service to help them manage their finances in a relaxed and open atmosphere. This innovative new branch design allows us to continue to support the growth of our membership and the local businesses in our community. - First Alliance Credit Union President and CEO, Mike Rosek
