Wells Fargo Slatington branch to close Aug. 3

Wells Fargo & Co. will close its Slatington branch this summer.

The 541 Main St., Slatington, branch will close Aug. 3, according to Elise Corbett, a spokeswoman for Wells Fargo.

Corbett said that Wells Fargo has made the “difficult decision” to close the bank’s Slatington branch.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause, and customers can continue to bank with us at our other nearby locations, including the Schnecksville branch which is about 5 miles away,” Corbett said.

“Branches continue to play an important role in the way we serve our customers, and we continuously evaluate our branch network in light of changing customer needs, the increase in the use of digital banking, market factors, and economic trends.”

Wells Fargo & Co. has shuttered multiple branches in the region, having recently closed a branch in Kingston, Luzerne County.

This marks the latest bank closure locally since the pandemic.

KeyBank’s Kresgeville Branch at 543 Interchange Road closed on April 1, with all customer accounts automatically transferred to KeyBank’s Lehighton Branch at 904 Blakeslee Blvd. Drive E.

BB&T Bank closed its branch office at 330 Delaware Ave., Palmerton, on July 20 and was consolidated into the BB&T Walnutport branch at 500 Main St. A branch office, now under the Truist umbrella, is also located at 2503 Chestnut St., off Route 209 in Brodheadsville.

Elsewhere, PNC Bank at 1279 Blakeslee Blvd. Drive E., Lehighton, closed on June 11 after it sent a letter to its customers notifying them.
