St. Mary's Credit Union breaks ground on its first Westborough branch next Tuesday morning.
The 10 a.m. ceremony at 96 Turnpike Road, the intersection of routes 9 and 30 will involve members of the Westborough Board of Selectmen, Town Manager Jim Malloy, and officials from St. Mary's Credit Union and the Corridor Nine Chamber of Commerce, bank officials said today in a press release.
The bank is expected to open in mid-2013, bank officials said.
The roughly 3,000-square-foot branch "includes a drive-up service window, a drive-up ATM, a coin counting machine, a night deposit box and a distinctive tower that will serve as a landmark at the busy intersection of routes 9 and 30," bank officials said.
The "Dialogue Banking" floor plan will allow "credit union staff to provide more personal consultative service to its members," bank officials said.
NES Group of Mansfield is doing the design and architecture work. F.W. Madigan Construction of Worcester is the general contractor.
Friendly's operated a restaurant on the site before filing for bankruptcy in October 2011.
