Regions Bank is closing 27 branches nationwide, including two in the metro-east.
One branch, at 100 South 2nd St. in Dupo, will combine with the branch at 100 Columbia Centre in Columbia, according to Mel Campbell, a spokesman for the Birmingham, Ala.-based bank.
The other branch, at 100 McDonald St. in Troy, will combine with the branch at 1 Eastport Plaza Drive in Collinsville.
Regions decided to consolidate branches “based on traffic, volume, proximity of other branches, profitability, and other factors,” Campbell wrote in a statement.
Nothing will happen to customers’ accounts, he said, except for the physical location where they can be accessed. They will close in April.
“We will make every effort to identify other jobs in the company for affected associates where possible,” Campbell wrote.
