MOORE — Tinker Federal Credit Union's rebuilt Moore branch will reopen Monday. The building at 400 SW Sixth Street was destroyed by a tornado on May 20. Tinker Federal made rebuilding a priority, starting construction of the new branch within about two months.

The new building features an updated floor plan, boosting space while including the same number of offices, teller windows and drive-thru lanes. It also features a monument made from a recovered section of the safe deposit box vault where 23 people took shelter during the storm.

“We are all so happy to be back home and in the community,” Branch Manager Jan Davis said. “We are absolutely thrilled to reopen, and it is so apparent on the faces of all of the employees here.”

As part of Monday's celebration, Tinker Federal will offer free commemorative coins to members. T-shirts will be available to purchase for $15 each, with proceeds going to Tinker Federal Credit Union's Shelter Moore Kids fund, which will help provide storm shelters for Moore Public Schools.
