He said the bank felt comfortable closing these locations because they are close to others. The North 27th Street branch is a five-minute drive from the much larger branch at 1101 Cornhusker Highway, and the North Cotner branch is only minutes from the bank headquarters branch at 84th and O Street. .

Lockard said all employees at both branches are retained and will be assigned to other branches. This will ensure that there will be plenty of staff available to help people with things they might want to do in person, like financial planning and loan applications.
