Local PNC branch shuts down

A local PNC bank branch has shut down as part of national consolidations.

The PNC branch at 7841 Old Troy Pike was scheduled to close at 3 p.m. today. The closure is part of a consolidation with another Huber Heights location about four miles away on 5116 Brandt Pike, said PNC spokeswoman Marcey Zwiebel.

“We are doing consolidations across the footprint, so it’s not in an specific markets. They’re just in response to the fact that the way customers are using branches is changing,” Zwiebel said.

More banking is taking place online. Customers can deposit checks with mobile apps and transfer money online. ATMs are also able to do more now, Zwiebel said, from cashing checks to withdrawing funds.

When consolidating, Zwiebel said the company tries to find new locations for displaced employees, but couldn’t provide additional details about specific locations.

Customers who primarily banked at the PNC on Old Troy Pike can switch to the receiving bank on Brandt Pike or any other PNC branch. There are also two ATMs within two miles of the closed branch.

Commercial Realtor with NAI Bergman Bob Zavakos said he will list the location on Monday, and he has already received offers. It would be good for almost anything from another bank to a fast food restaurant, he said.

“It’s right off the highway, it’s a right hand turn. Two right hand turns into the site is always a positive,” Zavakos said. “It’s longer on Old Troy Pike than it is deep. It’s 1.2 acres, which is a really good size.”
