ChoiceOne's Macomb Loan Office is scheduled to open in November on Hall Road in Sterling Heights. A grand opening celebration is scheduled for November 12.

"With over 100 years of serving the families and businesses in East and West Michigan, we recognized a need to provide our customers in the Macomb area with more loan options and convenience," said Burke.

We will now offer another convenient location for our personal and commercial loan customers."
