Wright-Patt Credit Union has purchased land in Englewood for the relocation of its branch in that community.

Wright-Patt Credit Union Inc. is listed as the buyer in twin transactions in Montgomery County records for just over two acres of commercially zoned vacant land off Union Road, just south of West Wenger Road, in Englewood.

A permanent easement from the city of Englewood was also part of the purchase.

Records give the price as $730,000. Beyond the easement transaction, Jerome Bulcher, of Mount Pleasant, S.C., is listed as the seller.

The credit union is moving its Englewood member center at 7704 Hoke Road to this new location, said Tracy Szarzi-Fors, the credit union’s vice president of marketing and business development.

“Site work is already underway,” Szarzi-Fors said in an email to the Dayton Daily News. “We simply outgrew our current location in Englewood. In order to serve members and prospective members better we searched for a location that would accommodate the footprint we needed.”

She added: “We are excited for the new member center for our members in Englewood. We expect it to be open this fall.”

Beavercreek-based Wright-Patt Credit Union had nearly 400,000 members and more than $4.9 billion in assets as of October 2019.
