Greater Community Bank announced this week that it will close its branch located at 2518 Shorter Ave. on June 30.

The bank stated that the decision to close the West Rome office is not one that they ‘took lightly’.

David. J. Lance, President and CEO said, “Mobile and electronic banking has had a tremendous effect on branch traffic in financial institutions during recent years. As times change, we must streamline our processes to remain competitive.”

Greater Community Bank has three other: its main office location at 1490 Martha Berry Blvd., the East Rome branch at 800 Second Ave. and at 305 West Belmont Dr. in Calhoun.
