Umpqua Bank branches in Port Angeles, Forks will stay open, not part of bank's closures of 27 locations

By Peninsula Daily News
and The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. — Umpqua Bank branches in Port Angeles and Forks will stay open and won't be part of closures planned as a result of Umpqua's merger with Sterling Financial, an Umpqua spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday.

“Neither of those locations will be consolidated,” Umpqua Bank spokeswoman Eve Callahan said Tuesday. “They will not be closed.”

The Port Angeles branch is at 1033 E. First St. The Forks branch is at 1020 S. Forks Ave.

The Oregon-based bank announced this week that it will close 27 branches by year's end as it consolidates operations after its April merger with Sterling Financial, with more closures possible next year.

In the announcement, Umpqua officials did not identify the branches due to be closed — but said the bank had notified all customers who will be affected by the closures, and would be automatically transferring customer accounts to “the most convenient” branch nearby.

The Columbian newspaper in Vancouver, Wash., reported the 27 would include 13 unspecified branches in Washington and seven each in Oregon and California.
