Genesee Co-op FCU has been located at 395 Gregory Street in the historic building known as Weider Hall since 2005. This 1885 building was built by Philip Weider (pronounced WIDER), on the site of his former house, for the purpose of opening a grocery store. A beautiful ballroom is located on the third floor of the building and according to an article in the Democrat and Chronicle the ballroom is "the last of its kind in Rochester."

The Board of Directors of Genesee Co-op FCU took great care in overseeing the design of the interior of the credit union to preserve the architectural beauty of the building. The original exposed brick walls have been maintained and panels of windows were set in place drawing natural light to our interior. State of the art security systems enhance the safety and security for our members and staff. A wheelchair ramp inclines gradually to our doors that can be electronically opened and a gracious teller space that can be easily reached from a seated position welcomes members with disabilities.
Our lobby walls are adorned with artwork of credit union members. We invite a new artist to display her or his art each quarter. If you are a member interested in showing your artwork, please contact the CU at 585-461-2230, x 12.
Our Members make the difference.

"I joined the credit union because my bank was starting to charge fees for different transactions and setting a minimum amount on how much you had to have in your account. I decided it was time to put my money where my mouth was and support local businesses. So, I opened a checking and saving account with the credit union. In 2004, I got a mortgage with them - which they helped me stay on top of when I was laid off for a short period. I have direct deposit there for work and I did open up a line of credit there many years ago; I don't use it often but it's nice to know it’s there in case I do need it. People at the credit union dress differently, they don't wear suits and they're down to earth. When I go there, it's friendly and welcoming. I like the brickwork and the fact that they have local artwork on the walls. Most of my friends already bank there."
