PNC Bank is closing its Strasburg Center Square branch at 1 E. Main St., Strasburg, a bank spokeswoman confirmed.
The bank will shut its doors Nov. 17; the receiving branch – the one that will receive its assets – is at 11 Long Lane, Willow Street. A remote ATM that sits across the street from the branch will stay in place, the spokeswoman added.
News of the closure was first reported in the weekly bulletin of the federal Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
“PNC recognizes that branches play a key role in how we provide solutions to our clients. alongside our other channels,” the spokeswoman said in a statement. “That’s why we continually study customer and prospect transaction patterns to determine how we can most effectively meet the needs of our communities.
“As a result of this work, we have grown our PNC branch footprint over the past five years–by building out new branches and through acquisitions – while total industry branches have declined. At the same time, we also make decisions to close branches as customer needs evolve. As always, we will continue to invest in – and optimize – our branch network alongside our other core banking channels to serve our customers in the most effective way we can.”
