Wells Fargo Closes in Lafayette and will close in West Berkeley this March

Wells Fargo recently closed their location at Mt. Diablo Blvd. & Moraga Rd. in Lafayette and will also be closing in Moraga West Berkeley this March. According to this CNN Money article, the closures are, “a reflection of Americans’ preference for online and mobile banking these days.” Considering how convenient online banking (even check deposits) has become, I’m not at all surprised by this.

Update: The Moraga branch is not closing. The West Berkeley Business Center is closing in March.

    How’s that crazy bank-cafe doing in downtown WC? Anyone been to it?

    • Seems emptier than the one in SF. I go there for 50% off drinks which is great.

    These banks waste valuable space in downtown areas. They don’t need an entire corner like when they gave away toasters to people opening new accounts. Dig ’em out, build parking underneath and housing with some retail, including a small bank space on top.
