The credit union held a $2 million loan sale to celebrate the grand opening of its new Janesville office.

The promotion featured loan rates as low as 0.99% for the first $500,000 in loans, 1.99% for the next $500,000 in loans and 2.99% for the remainder.

The first members lined up at 4 a.m. (CT) to guarantee them the lowest promotional rate.  By 8 a.m. more than 50 people were in the queue.

The loan sale ran from 9 a.m. to 12 a.m. with more than 70 loans approved. That is a loan approval almost every 2.5 minutes.
