HVCU Customers Voice Their Concerns on New Branch Time Change

Change in any business is tough for customers to get used to. But the biggest concern for HVCU Customers is the early closing times. One of the main perks of being an HVCU customer was having access to the bank until 7 pm. However, with the change, all branches will be closed between 5 pm and 6 pm.

One HVCU customer wrote in the comment section on the bank's Facebook page "These hours suck! Most of us work past those hours. Huge inconvenience!" another added:

I started going to the credit union because of the hours I was able to work out of town all week and still be able to get to the bank on Saturday late afternoon to cash my check or get money out looks like it’s true know one wants to work anymore.

So why the time change? On the Hudson Valley Credit Union website, they explain:

HVCU is committed to evaluating new ways of improving service as modern technology and the behaviors of our membership continue to evolve.

While some customers aren't thrilled with the new time change others are supporting the bank. Another comment read "There literally minimal reasons to go into a bank these days. Get with the times people. Let the employees enjoy some time off too."

While the 21 Hudson Valley Credit Union branches have new hours in 2024, the hours at the Contact Center will stay the same Contact Center
