In the New North, one Associated Bank location is affected — the branch at 2175 S. Memorial Drive in Appleton.
“The Associated Bank branch consolidations align with an industry-wide trend, which includes consumer migration to mobile and online banking, a smaller branch footprint and lower frequency of branch walk-in traffic,” David Stein, Associated Bank’s executive vice president and head of consumer and business banking, said in a statement.
The change is being made because of “the accelerated migration of customers to digital channels since the start of the pandemic is a factor in the current consolidation decisions,” the company said in a statement.
The branches are expected to close by mid-December. Associated said the 46 employees affected by the closures will be offered other available positions with the company.
