MidFlorida Credit Union adds South Tampa to its family of branches

MidFlorida Credit Union opened its newest branch in South Tampa at 1112 S Dale Mabry Hwy. on April 6.

The state-chartered financial institution celebrated its grand opening with free hors d’oeuvres from Terra Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse as well as incentives and special certificate offers for all attendees, such as $100 gift cards to local businesses.

"We heard from our members that they wanted a branch in the South Tampa area," said Christopher David, Chief of Retail Delivery for MidFlorida.

"This location is conveniently close to popular stores, restaurants and more, so members can easily drop in while they’re out."

The South Tampa branch features MidFlorida’s notable Saturday hours, extended 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. drive thru hours, a drive-up 24 hour ATM, a night drop, a coin counting machine and safe deposit boxes. Members also can receive on-site assistance with business loans and mortgages, and like all other branches, members can enjoy free coffee in the lobby every day and free popcorn every Friday.

This branch will set the tone for the future of the institution taking a more community-focused approach with a mortgage office and a community room open for local groups to reserve and meet in a convenient location.

Operating hours for drive-thru are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays and closed Sundays. The lobby operates Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday; and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
