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 was working at Godiva's clothing store on Monroe Avenue when the credit union opened just down the street; so I decided to use them for my checking and savings accounts. Everyone there was friendly and community-oriented. Then I needed a used car loan and they helped with that too. Most importantly, in 2004, I got my mortgage through them, a 30-year-fixed at less than 6 percent interest. It took about a year to secure because the house had to be rehabilitated but they helped me discover the Southwedge Planning Committee to make it happen. It was exciting. They also helped my wife, who is from Colombia (South America), establish credit. In the meantime, they've helped me with my second and third car loans. I like the fact that they're in the neighborhood and when you walk in, the atmosphere just feels friendly. One of my friends had her artwork displayed on the walls. The credit union has helped me a lot and I've always referred my friends there."
