Richland-based HAPO Community Credit Union has bought property to build two new branches, including its first in Oregon.
The branches will be in the Walla Walla area and Hermiston.
"It is very gratifying that our successes and financial strength continue, which allow us to expand our services to these two communities," the credit union's president and CEO David Schulz said in a news release.
"Our move into Hermiston is especially exciting for us as we grow beyond the borders of Washington state," he said.
The Hermiston branch will be at 1905 N. First St. Ground breaking is planned for June and it's scheduled to open in November.
HAPO also has bought three quarters of an acre at 1225 S.E. Commercial Drive in College Place. The bank is developing a construction timeline and will announce ground breaking at a later date.
Bank spokeswoman Bernadette Clapper said the bank does not want to disclose what it paid for the two new properties.
HAPO has 11 locations in Washington, including seven in the Tri-Cities, two in Yakima, one in Sunnyside and a mortgage office in Walla Walla, Clapper said.
Started in 1953, the business employs about 250 employees and serves about 90,000 members.
