Vons CU Steps Into Arrowhead Central CU Breach

Register now

HESPERIA, Calif. – Vons CU plans to open a new branch inside a Vons supermarket here, just as local Arrowhead Central CU is selling its branch to out-of-state credit union giant Alaska USA FCU.

Vons CU officials said the new branch is aimed at serving some members Arrowhead will no longer serve.

The move was a natural for Vons CU because it’s on the same shared branching network as Arrowhead, the Financial Service Centers Cooperative.

Alaska USA is completing the conversion of the Hesperia branch and three others in the area from branches of Arrowhead Central, which was taken under NCUA conservatorship over the weekend.
