The Bank of Edwardsville is closing one of its branches in Alton. Officials have decided to close the location on Ridge Street, as well as a location inside the Shop and Save store in Edwardsville. A bank spokesman says as more people turn to on-line banking, they are simply adjusting to the changing business climate.
In addition, The Bank of Edwardsville's main location in Edwardsville will offer expanded hours for both inside the bank and drive-thru customers Monday through Saturday. The Bank's location off Martin Luther King Junior Blvd. and Northport Drive in Alton remains open.
