We chose Northern Savings Credit Union because they are a hometown bank. The first time we spoke to anyone that works there we felt comfortable and left with a great feeling that this bank was going to help our company be successful. Not only did they help us with a loan when we needed it the most but have given us such great advice over the years. We have been a member of Northern Savings Credit Union for many years not only for our business but personally as well."
