Blast from the Sudbury Past

AN exterior shot of the old Sudbury location circa 1960s
Sonia Peczeniuk dropped by our Sudbury branch with an album of old photos that brought back memories from days gone by. The photos show our old location down the street from where we are now. Her father Nestor was the manager of the Ukrainian Co-op grocery.

In the very old days the credit union was set up at the back of the store, before moving to an office next door to the co-op.

"I remember it like yesterday," says Branch Manager Angela Andlar. "It was a grocery store where memebrs could purchase their groceries on account when they didn't have money. And they would deliver the groceries to your house."

In fact, it is a little known fact that Angela's mother was visiting the Co-op the day she went into labour and the Co-op's delivery van rushed her to the hospital to give birth. Now that is service old school.

You can see a few more pictures on our Facebook page in the album titled: A look back at Sudbury.
