Arvest Bank announces it will close 31 of their over 270 Branches in the region at the end of June.
In a statement released Wednesday, the company says that in trying to keep a balance between customer preferences of digital to on-site banking, they conducted an in-depth analysis of their system which has led to the changes.
The release goes on to say that over one-third of the facilities being closed are limited service branches and almost all of the closures are in markets were other branches are nearby.
Three branches in the Lakes are on the closing list including the facility on 700 U.S. Highway 62-65 in Harrison as well as branches located in Lead Hill and Shell Knob.
In total, 15 of the branches closing are in Oklahoma, 12 in Arkansas, 4 in Missouri.
