“Like many industries, our customers’ preferences and behaviors around banking are shifting,” the bank said in a statement. “We are listening and responding by adjusting our business model and delivery to better serve our customers, which includes consolidating branches while also opening new ones, increasing our investment in digital, service center and ATM capabilities, and testing new products and services. We remain committed to Pennsylvania, and will continue proudly working with our clients in branches across the area, and through our 24/7 digital banking channels and ATMs.”
