Penn Community bank opening Doylestown branch, closing Poole’s Corner

Perkasie-based Penn Community Bank said it will be opening a new downtown Doylestown branch this summer.

According to the bank, the branch will be in the Doylestown Center shopping complex and will have a 24-hour lobby ATM, as well as private meeting spaces for customers to discuss their financial needs with staff.

With the opening of the new branch, Penn Community Bank will be closing its Poole’s Corner branch, which is less than two miles away.

“We constantly explore opportunities to better serve the needs of our community, to provide access to quality financial services, to strengthen the local economy, and to partner with local organizations to improve quality of life,” Jeane Vidoni, president and CEO of Penn Community Bank, said in a release. “This new location puts Penn Community Bank in the heart of Doylestown with a new, highly visible, easy-to-access location dedicated to personal and business relationship banking in the community.”

The Poole’s Corner branch will remain open in the interim. When the new downtown branch opens those employees will transfer to the new location.

In explaining its choice of the new site, the bank pointed to plentiful parking in the area and noted that the new location is accessible by public transportation and is within walking distance of neighborhoods and businesses.
