PCCU to open highly anticipated new branch at 48 St James’s Street in Burnley. The premises was chosen because of its location amongst the most well-known stores, banks and building societies in the town centre.
The branch will open 6 days a week from Monday 29th October 2018. If you have an enquiry regarding your account, the new location or require further information contact telephone 01282 691333, leave a message for PCCU to contact you here, or via email.
Over the past 5 years we have successfully operated in Burnley from within The Calico Homes Group’s headquarters in Centenary Court, Croft Street. The period has seen impressive growth in the number of both savers and borrowers from the community for our Credit Union. Kathryn Fogg CEO thanked The Calico Group for providing a base to serve local residents and raise awareness about the service that PCCU offer
The highly successful partnership with Calico has helped 1200 people to gain access to ethical savings and affordable loan accounts
PCCU currently has 5000 adult account holders, over £6.8 million in collective savings and has issued £50million worth of loans in the past 36 years. We believe the new branch, which includes cashier desks and a private interview room will further raise awareness to the people of Burnley.
This will bring PCCU onto Burnley High Street showcasing us to the local community as an alternative to high interest lenders, whilst being competitive with larger loans up to £15,000. We also welcome anyone from the community to open a safe savings account
PCCU has totally renovated the St James’s Street branch situated between Dorothy Perkins, the bustling coffee shops and the banks which line the high street.
The decision to leave The Calico Group’s headquarters was difficult but after being successful in a £50,000 grant bid from the Lloyds Banking Group Development Fund, our Credit Union decided there was no better time to offer our accounts to more residents in the local community by having a more prominent position in the town centre. Kathryn described the positive effect securing the grant funding has had
The grant allows us not only to commit to a new high street branch in Burnley, but to operate a branch within SPE Furnishings, on Briercliffe Road, and employee an additional member of staff to offer a real alternative to the pay weekly stores
