Bank of America to close downtown Woodland branch in March



Bank of America will close its branch in downtown Woodland in March, the bank confirmed Wednesday.

The branch, which employs five people, will cease operations at its 740 Goerig St. location at 2 p.m. March 15 as part of a cost-cutting strategy to close hundreds of branches across the nation. Bank of America has no other locations in Woodland, but it operates branches in Battle Ground and Longview, and a banking kiosk in the Salmon Creek Albertsons at 14300 N.E. 20th Ave.

Letters about the closure and banking options have been sent to customers. Since 2011, Charlotte, N.C.-based Bank of America has been closing branches — mostly in smaller communities — across the nation.
