CO-OP Contact Center offered over 28,000 calls on Thursday alone, it was the highest single day volume ever,” said CO-OP Chief Operating Officer Nick Calcanes. “A large portion of those calls were members asking about their stimulus checks.”Similarly, transaction volumes across the CO-OP Shared Branch Network rose 19 percent year-over-year on April 15.last_img
