ROME, N.Y. — Berkshire Bank announced it has decided to close its branch at 100 W. Dominick St. in Rome and consolidate it with its office at 1629 Black River Boulevard in Rome, as of April 30.
“We regularly evaluate our branch network to ensure we are delivering our services in a manner that aligns with our customers’ preferences and expectations,” Brian Sullivan, SVP, retail branch banking at Berkshire Bank, said in a statement the bank forwarded to CNYBJ.
Berkshire’s branch at 1300 Erie Boulevard West in Rome “is also nearby and approximately the same distance away,” Sullivan added. Berkshire Bank is planning to maintain its ATM at 139 West Dominick St.
Sullivan went on to say that Berkshire Bank is communicating its decision to customers who could be impacted.
“We are also working closely with our team members at the West Dominick Street branch to review career opportunities within the Bank and transition them to other positions. We have a strong track record of retaining team members who have previously been impacted by consolidation.”
