BB&T said there will be no employee layoffs as the result of the closing of bank branches in Bethlehem Township, Northampton County, Shartlesville, Berks County, and Red Hill, Montgomery County.
The closures are part of the approximately 140 branches that BB&T Corp. chairman and CEO Kelly S. King recently announced the company expects to close in 2017
The company said it made a decision to close its financial centers at 3933 Freemansburg Ave. in Bethlehem Township, 4 Roadside Drive in Shartlesville and 433 Main St. in Red Hill and other branches based on many factors, including client usage.
Spokesman David White noted that for the Freemansburg Avenue branch there is a BB&T financial center about two miles away at 3201 Emrick Blvd. in Bethlehem Township.
“We look forward to continuing to serve our clients there,” he said.
The Bethlehem Township and Red Hill branches will close Dec. 1.
The Shartlesville branch will close Dec. 8.
