Verona got another drive through last week.

This time, the city added a new financial institution instead of a restaurant.

UW Credit Union opened its new branch at 651 Hometown Circle Monday, July 15, on the former site of the Dairy Queen, which closed in April 2018.

The 5,000 square foot facility is the credit union’s 27th Wisconsin location, according to a company news release. A grand opening will be held at 3 p.m. Friday, July 26.

“Moving away from the traditional teller line, the branch features teller pods, making it easier to interact with members and demonstrate how to access online banking features on mobile devices,” the news release states.

The credit union lobby will be open 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Drive up hours are 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

As part of the branch’s first week of operation, it has been holding a food drive for Badger Prairie Needs Network.

“The food drive reflects UW Credit Union’s vision of helping people, serving the community, building partnerships and making a difference in Verona,” Verona branch manager Brand Day said in the release. “We’re excited to partner with Miller & Sons and Badger Prairie Needs Network for a hometown grand opening event that celebrates Verona by connecting with our neighbors.”
