Qualstar Credit Union was originally started in 1952. This was the year Safeway Seattle Employees’ Federal Credit Union was founded by a group of employees working for the Seattle Division of the Safeway grocery store chain. The first office of the credit union was located on Mercer Street in Seattle, Washington. Today. Its name is different – but that is a result of the success they have seen since the first deposit was made in 1952. We continue to serve Safeway employees, but we have also greatly expanded the number of people who can take advantage of membership. With a very diverse group of members including union members, community residents, and employees of more than 300 Washington companies, the name was changed to better reflect the membership diversity. The credit union recognizes the realities of life and money and appreciate what it means to work and save to give your family the kind of life you’d like them to have. We relate to our members not simply in terms of what they need, but in recognition of who they are – honest and hard-working. At the heart of Qualstar is nothing less than being true to the ideas of what a credit union should be about – finding ways to improve members’ lives.
