APG Credit Union to open in former PNC branch in Chesapeake City, MD


APG Federal Credit Union (APGFCU), a community credit union serving Harford and Cecil counties in  Maryland,  announced it will open two new branches in early 2018, following PNC’s decision to close two banking offices. 

The new Chesapeake City branch, a short drive from the Delaware line,  will be located at 2579 Augustine Highway (Route 213).  The credit union will locate to a PNC branch which closed in November and left the community without a branch of a financial institution.

“We heard the outcry from residents, and are answering the call,” says Don Lewis, CEO. “APGFCU is committed to serving people in all parts of Cecil County. We look forward to being a part of the Chesapeake City community.”

The new Riverside branch will be located at 1327 Riverside Parkway in the Riverside Shopping Center, at the intersection of Route 7 and Route 543.

This is also a former PNC Bank branch, which closed in April 2017. 


Both new branches will offer weekday and Saturday hours, drive-through service, drive-up ATMs and safe deposit boxes.

APGFCU  has 11 branches and two loan centers in Harford and Cecil counties. Membership is free and open to everyone who lives, works, worships, volunteers or attends school in Harford and Cecil counties.

The credit union was formed to serve the Aberdeen Proving Ground community in Harford County. It went on become a community credit union in the two counties. It is one of the largest credit unions in Maryland, with assets of $1.2 billion.
