This US Bank Is Now Permanently Closing More Branches

A US bank is now permanently closing more branches by mid-November according to a new report from The-Sun.

This trend has only grown throughout the year as online banking now forces traditional banks to pivot like never before.

“Six longstanding Associated Bank branches, including five in Wisconsin, are permanently closing November 17th.

The closures are reportedly due in large part to issues that are reportedly related to the ongoing popularity of online banking and are said to be financially strategic in nature,” reports Joel Eisenberg.

Associated Banc-Corp (Associated Bank) is a U.S. regional bank holding company providing retail banking, commercial banking, commercial real estate lending, private banking, and specialized financial services.

Most of the bank’s branches are located in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota.

According to an October 9th report from The-Sun.com, in addition to the five Wisconsin closures, an Illinois branch will also be closing that same day.

Associated Bank, which has 202 branches, is shutting down six locations in Wisconsin and Illinois. The addresses affected are as follows:

  • 300 North LaSalle Drive, Chicago, IL
  • 2815 South Chicago Avenue, South Milwaukee, WI
  • 5987 County Highway West, Manitowish Waters, WI
  • 3847 South Howell Avenue, Milwaukee, WI
  • 2001 South Webster Avenue in Allouez, WI
  • 717 Main Street, Menomonie, WI

The shutdown dates are all set for November 17.

The news comes after a report of Wisconsin layoffs surging this month according to the latest WARN data.

The state has currently laid off nearly 5,000 people this year with at least 94 companies filing WARN notices.

However, under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, an employer with more than 100 full-time workers must provide a 60-day notice before laying off 50 or more people at a single site.
