TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- One of the world’s largest banks is pulling up stakes in the Capital City.

Bank of America notified its customers Friday that all three of its Topeka branches will close this summer. A company spokesperson, Diane Wagner, told 13 NEWS they would be shut down in August.

Wagner added that three ATMs would remain in town, at:

  • Dillon’s Plaza, 910 NW 25th Street;
  • Stormont Vail Healthcare, 1500 SW 10th Street; and
  • A standalone ATM at SW 21st St. and Wanamaker Road.

“We are working to minimize the impact on the communities, our customers and our people,” Wagner said.

For anyone needing to do their banking in person, Wagner says the Lawrence location, in the 900 block of Ohio Street, will remain open. The email sent to customers urged them to take advantage of the bank’s online and mobile banking services, direct deposit, and banking by phone.

“We will provide various forms of assistance to associates impacted, including helping them find other opportunities within the company,” Wagner added.

She explained customers are doing more and more banking transactions outside of its financial centers, and the closures come as the company tries to adapt to the changing landscape and provide customers the ability “to bank where, when and how they want.”
