Wells Fargo is closing two of its branches in the Lehigh Valley this spring “in light of changing customer needs, market factors and economic trends,” a statement from the bank said.
The locations are at 4797 W. Tilghman St., Allentown (South Parkland Branch) and 2555 Easton Ave., Bethlehem (Rodgers Street Office).
Notice of the closures was reported in the March 5-11 Weekly Bulletin of the Office of Comptroller of the Currency. Nearly 30 Wells Fargo branches overall across the country are listed as closing in the most recent OCC Weekly Bulletin.
The bank’s statement said that “Wells Fargo made the difficult decision to close our Rodgers Street and South Parkland branches in Bethlehem and Allentown, respectively, on Wednesday, June 7, 2023, at 12 p.m.”
“We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause, and customers can continue to bank with us at our other nearby locations. For our Rodgers Street customers, they can visit our Bethlehem Square branch, approximately 2 miles away, and for our South Parkland customers, our Cedar Crest branch is also about 2 miles away.”
