Bank of America to close Portola branch
Bank of America announced Friday that it will close its Portola branch on June 28.
A spokesperson for the bank said the decision to close the local banking center on West Sierra Street was due to declining business.
“The decision to close this banking center was not an easy one,” said Bank of America spokesperson Colleen Haggerty. “It was driven primarily by a decline in transactions, as customers increasingly rely on other channels such as mobile and online banking.”
Haggerty said customers are being notified “more than 90 days in advance to give them ample time to become familiar with their banking options.”
She said customers with additional questions could go to the banking center and talk to a bank employee.
