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 when they first opened on Monroe Avenue. I wanted to build an account with a financial institution. I saw that they were new and I was starting new - so I thought it would be a good start! They were nice and courteous people. After they moved to South Avenue I wanted to buy a new car and they helped me with that and I have taken out personal loans with them too. They're more personal, a bank doesn't know you from the next 500 people. I always recommend them to people. The credit union looks at the things happening in your life and works with you. They know that people don't fail because they are not working on their life. Sometimes things just happen. I would like to get my next mortgage through them. I love them, they just fit my needs."
