Duluth Teachers Credit Union Announces New Name and Location

Duluth Teachers Credit Union has announced its new name, Harbor Pointe Credit Union.
The credit union, with locations Downtown Duluth, Kenwood and Miller Hill was founded in 1933 by a group of Duluth Educators that first served ISD709 employees and their families.  Field of membership was expanded several years ago to include anyone living in Duluth, Hermantown or Proctor and more recently expanded to anyone living in South St. Louis County, all of Douglas and Carlton Counties as well as Two Harbors.  

The New name Harbor Pointe Credit Union was chosen as a name that better encompasses the regions the credit union now serves.  Brian Thompson, Marketing/Communications Director for the credit union states, “Many in the region thought they were not eligible for membership as they were not teachers.  The Board of Directors of the credit union, made up of many retired Duluth Schools employees has been in talks of a name change for the past several years as a way to offer more people in our region the valuable benefits the credit union has offered educators for so many years while providing a remedy for market confusion of the former name.”

Thompson further states, “Members response to the new name has been very positive.  By selecting this new name, we are making a big investment in our future and have provided a strong foundation for credit union growth for many generations to come.”

Along with the new name, the credit union will be opening a new branch in the new Kenwood Village complex on the corner of Arrowhead Road and Kenwood Ave.  The current Kenwood Branch in the Kenwood Shopping center that has served members for 28 years will be moving over to the new location in late November. Credit Union staff is excited to make the move to a brand new state of the art facility.

The transformation to Harbor Pointe Credit Union has begun, new signs for the buildings are ordered and re-branding should be complete in late fall. Our goal is to make this transition as smooth as possible for our members.

The credit union takes pride in its history, development and what it has become today – A credit union with over 8,000 members and over $108 million in assets. We take pride in offering some of the most competitive consumer and mortgage services and we are excited for the new growth the new name will help generate.
