Vantage CU closes Eureka branch
BRIDGETON, Mo. (8/1/12)--Vantage CU, Bridgeton, Mo., has closed the second of two branches it acquired in a 2010 merger with Spirit of St. Louis CU.

Vantage CU, with $710 million in assets, closed its Eureka branch on June 29 due to a lack of "foot traffic," according to a representative for the credit union.

Members are being directed to Vantage CU's West County and Sunset Hills branches for service.

A sign on the closed branch also indicated that free CO-OP Network ATMs were available at another nearby credit union inside a Walmart Supercenter (Eureka-Wildwood Patch Jan. 31).

Vantage closed its Des Peres, Mo., branch, which it also acquired in the merger with Spirit of St. Louis CU, in February 2011. The credit union cited operational challenges, restrictive legislation, a sluggish economy and light patronage for the Des Peres branch closing.
