Orrstown Bank on South Cleveland Avenue to close

July 14, 2010

Orrstown Bank will close its South Cleveland Avenue branch Nov. 30, transferring customers to its newer Hagerstown branch off Eastern Boulevard, Orrstown Financial Services said in a press release.

The 201 S. Cleveland Ave. branch opened in March 2006 and was viewed as a temporary location until the bank could build a full-service facility in the Hagerstown area, the release said.

The branch at 1020 Professional Court, off of Eastern Boulevard, opened in September 2008.

"The tremendous success of our Eastern Boulevard Office meant that the limited service facility on Cleveland Avenue was no longer necessary," Orrstown President and CEO Thomas R. Quinn Jr. said in the release.

Current customers of the Cleveland Avenue branch will have their accounts transferred to the Eastern Boulevard office, which is less than two miles away, the release said.


All employees at the Cleveland Avenue branch are being retained and will work at nearby locations, it said.

Mark Bayer, Orrstown's vice president and director of marketing, said Wednesday that the Cleveland Avenue branch has four or five employees.

The small Cleveland Avenue branch was opened "as a place to get a toehold," but the building had some physical limitations, Bayer said.

Orrstown Bank has 21 banking offices and two remote service facilties in Cumberland, Franklin and Perry Counties in Pennsylvania, and in Washington County.

Quinn said the company was pursuing additional locations in Hagerstown and the surrounding area.

"We are absolutely committed to expanding our presence in the Hagerstown market," he said in the release.

Bayer said the company was looking at "a number of areas" for potential branches but he could not discuss specifics.
