I was in this branch of Bank of America on Wed. Today while traveling I was told this branch closed yesterday. True? And if so anyone know what is planned for that site?

Seems to me to be a very choice location.

Oh MY!!! I remember it as it was decades ago! However, I can see that it had too much wasted space. Beautiful for the day it was created, but not very useful now when you need space for zillions more customers with all sort of different needs for a bank.

Hope someone can make a good deal for it.

Who would go to BOA? Their motto is, "You're just a number with us".

You're talking about the BOA on Bull at 37th, right? That's a horrible location for a bank! Surprised they didn't close that branch long ago ...

For me it's a means to the end. I don't like ANY banksters. They are all same, only the location changes.

So, who would you recommend in that area, which is convinent for me?

Excuse me! I thought we were talking about the one on Bull Street uptown on the square. I've never even been in the one at 37th. At one time, that was an important location.

I started with BOA when the C&S was THE bank in Savannah, It was later bought out by NationsBank (I think that was it) I didn't bother to change accounts. Later, it became BOA and I stayed for the same reason. The only other bank that I ever bothered with has since gone out of business. It just happens that it is in a good location for us. I don't like their interest rates on CDs, but then, none are very good now!

What bothers me about banks now is that they seem to go under, change their name, leave town, and a host of other things that make me wonder about their safety. I can't stand the though of maybe losing access to my piddly savings!

Do you need a locally based bank or one that is national or regional? Since you appear to travel, it would make sense to do business with one of the biggies. If you only want local convenience, go into the Kroger downtown and see if that works for you.

Personally, I've gotten to the point that I rarely need to step foot in a bank. You might want to look into who provides the best mobile banking security/features and go that route.

The only reason for BOA (as I prefer JP Morgan ) is bc BOA has locations in Sav and NYC. I use this relationship so as to make deposits into employee and contrators accounts in Sav when in NYC and visa versa .

I drove past on 37th street yesterday and could see something taped to their drive thru window, but I didn't have time to circle back around to drive around the block and look more carefully.
