Catherine Pegram

No one will lose their jobs when two Bank of America branches in Orono and Sanford close this spring. The company announced it’s shutting down the Orono branch on Main Street and a drive-up location on River Street in Sanford on March 16th. Five people work at those locations and a spokesperson says they’ll all be moved to other branches. Local customers can still get Bank of America service less than four miles away, too.A branch in Old Town and a full-service bank in Sanford will remain open.We’re told the closures are part of the company’s plan to reduce the number of centers across the country over the next few years. Right now Maine has 34 Bank of America locations.
