One U.S. Bank location in Rio Rancho has closed, but another remains open.
The branch at 1000 Commercial Drive closed early this month.
The one on NM 528 across from Intel is still operating.
“The closure is part of previously discussed work that kicked off in early 2019 to optimize our branch delivery networks in response to changing customer preferences and behaviors,” U.S. Bank Communications Manager Boua Xiong said in an email. “Although we are closing some branches, we are continuing to open and enhance others, as well as rapidly enhancing our digital capabilities.”
In October, U.S. Bank informed employees and customers at the Commercial Drive location that the branch would close Jan. 2. Xiong said employees received information about open positions within the bank, including those with the option to work remotely.
She said she couldn’t share employee numbers.
“We are proud of our history in Rio Rancho, and look forward to continuing to serve the local community through our other location at 1781 Rio Rancho Blvd. SE, along with our convenient digital and voice offerings,” Xiong said.
