The bank will consolidate its services with a Santander branch one mile away at 924 Eaton Ave. in Bethlehem, Nancy Orlando, spokesperson for Santander, said in a statement.

The move would ensure the bank continues to meet the banking needs of its Bethlehem area customers.

“We routinely review our branch network to make sure we are optimizing our resources and this consolidation makes good sense for both our customers and our business,” Orlando said. “Customers were notified of the closure 90 days in advance and all of our team members from the closed branch will remain employed with us.”

Lehigh Valley Business is also a tenant in the building.
