Wells Fargo has confirmed the closure of its branch located on Bridge Street in the City of Lambertville.

The closure took effect at noon last Wednesday.

As of Monday, the ATM remained opened, but the night deposit box was sealed.

Crews worked throughout the last week to clear out the branch’s furniture and take down signage.

The move comes amidst an increasing shift toward digital banking platforms and a reduction in the need for physical banking locations.

“This is not an easy decision or one we take lightly. Branches continue to play an important role in the way we serve our customers, and we continuously evaluate our branch network in light of changing customer needs, the increase in the use of digital banking and market factors,” Wells Fargo said in a recent statement.

For those frequenting the Lambertville branch, services will remain accessible at nearby locations, including the Wells Fargo branch at 336 West Bridge Street in New Hope Borough.

The future of the now-closed Wells Fargo branch that is owned by the bank is unclear.

The building was constructed for Hunterdon County National Bank and has operated under several names, including Wachovia Bank, which was acquired by Wells Fargo bank in 2008.
