Navy Federal Credit Union expanded its presence in Kitsap this week with the opening of a branch inside the Poulsbo Walmart.

The branch will serve about 5,000 members, according to a news release.

The Poulsbo location is Navy Federal’s third in Kitsap, joining branches in Bremerton and Silverdale.

“We have found a special home here in the Kitsap County,” Poulsbo branch manager Harold Hartley said in the release. “And our team prides itself on the excellent level of service we provide our members every day.”

Navy Federal made a $1,000 donation to the U.S. Submarine Veterans Charitable Foundation as part of the opening celebration.

Navy Federal Credit Union is the world’s largest credit union with more than $76 billion in assets, 6 million members, 286 branches, and a workforce of over 14,000 employees worldwide, according to the release.

The full-service branch includes an ATM, mortgage services, and a  coin sorting machine. Parker said staff includes 10  full-time and five part-time employees. Navy Federal has about 23,000 members in the Kitsap area.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

Navy Federal is the world’s largest credit union, with 259 branches nationwide, including seven in Washington State and two in Kitsap County. The credit union plans to open 20 new branches this year. A Tacoma branch is slated to open this spring, according to a news release.

Navy Federal is open to all Department of Defense and Coast Guard active duty, civilian, and contractor personnel and their families.

The opening of the credit union branch is a positive development for the Sixth and Pacific building, which narrowly avoided a foreclosure sale this winter. Group Health, Edward Jones and Distributed Energy Management also have offices there.
