More than a year after the merger between PNC Financial Services and National City Corp., local National City branches are converting to the PNC name. A new sign was unveiled at the branch at 1000 East Centerville Station in Centerville Friday Feb. 19. Tracy Williams, an employee of Victory Sign and Lighting, helps with installation of the new sign.

The Dayton metropolitan’s third largest bank PNC Financial Services Group Inc. said it’s closing two Dayton area branches in August.

PNC is closing the branch 4389 W. Third St., Dayton, in the Westown Shopping Center, said bank spokeswoman Marcey Zwiebel. Also closing is the Beavercreek branch 3979 Indian Ripple Road.

The branch offices are scheduled to close Aug. 16. No other Cincinnati, Dayton or Springfield branches are on the list to close at this point, Zwiebel said.

“Customers are free to use any branch that may be convenient to them,” she said.

Dayton Daily News has followed the trend of large regional banks closing branches to cut costs as consumers increasingly turn to electronic banking. In March, PNC said it planned to close about 200 branch offices in 2013, including a downtown Springfield location that shut down Feb. 22.

PNC is the Dayton metro’s third largest bank by deposits of approximately $1.5 billion, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
