West Seattle Blog… | Sound Credit Union: Welcome new West Seattle blog sponsor!

Today we welcome a new WSB sponsor, sound credit union (4730 California Avenue SW). New sponsors have the opportunity to tell you about what they’re up to, so here’s what they’re up to sound credit union wants you to know:

To sound credit union, we are West Seattle end to end. We know it. We like that. But what makes West Seattle so unique? With so many beloved features and landmarks, it can be hard to agree on a favorite, but no list would be complete without including The Junction.

For visitors, or even newcomers to the neighborhood, the California Avenue SW and SW Alaska Street crosswalk can be confusing. The light turns red and traffic stops in all directions? Can pedestrians cross as they please? What is this madness?!

But the beauty of The Junction – known as the “pedestrian scramble” – is that it puts people first. And as a local nonprofit credit union, we’ve always put people first. We are known for our personal touch, our excellent interest rates and our active support of local organizations: we have helped more than 290 community organizations last year alone!

And right now, we’re celebrating West Seattle by giving away free* t-shirts featuring this quirky, people-focused hub at The Junction to everyone who walks into our location in California, just steps from the intersection. all paths we all know and love.

Come in and say “hello” for your free T-shirt! And if you open a checking account at our West Seattle branch, we’ll even give you $100*. Have been sound credit union, and we are worth crossing the street. Diagonally, if you will!

sound credit union is located at 4730 California Avenue SW, just south of SW Alaska Street at The Junction, and is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. You can find us online at, and you can contact our West Seattle location by phone at 800-562-8130ext. 8220.
