The only financial institution of the century has now closed: NorthEscambia.com


The Century branch of Pen Air Federal Credit Union closed, leaving Century without a financial institution.

The lobby at Pen Air closed for good this week. The “Pen Air LIVE” interactive video ATMs will remain open.

“Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your community for all these years. We look forward to serving your banking needs, now and for many years to come, ”Angie White, Pen Air Century branch manager, said in an email to members last month.

“I hate that they close,” Sandra McMurray-Jackson recently told NorthEscambia.com. She is a long-time member of Pen Air, a Century business owner and a member of the Century City Council. She joined Pen Air in the late 1990s with her late husband, with her two sons becoming members as they got older.

“I consider Pen Air to be part of my family,” Jackson said. “We need Pen Air in Century. “

In its email to members, Pen Air said banking behavior has changed, with a dramatic shift over the past year. The credit union said an “overwhelming majority” of members now use online banking, a mobile app and other digital services when possible.
