TD Bank is closing two branches in Berkshire County and consolidating them into existing offices.
ADAMS, Mass. — TD Bank is closing two Berkshire County branches.
The bank is closing its offices at 10 Center St. in Adams and merging it five miles away with the branch on Main Street in North Adams. The one on Main Street in Dalton will be merged into the Merrill Road branch in Pittsfield, four miles away.
"This was a difficult decision and was not taken lightly. We evaluate a number of factors when deciding to consolidate a location and make decisions that will allow us to best meet the needs of our current and future customer," said Lauren Moyer, spokeswoman for the company, in an email on Tuesday. "Customers will continue to do their banking just as they do today, but at a different location with features that provide a more consistent customer experience."
Moyer said the employees at the closed branches will be eligible for other positions and the company expects "to help many employees find jobs." Moyer said there are five to 10 employees in each branch, which it calls stores.
She added that a "decision has not been made on the future of the sites we are vacating."
Letters have already been sent out to customers. A letter to an Adams customer reads that the bank "will be moving into the existing store at 90 Main St., North Adams as of Nov. 16." The letter says the accounts will be automatically transferred to the other location.
On Monday, Adams Branch Manager James Truden confirmed the merger but referred all additional comments to the corporate office. The bank also has a branch in Great Barrington.
