FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Arvest Bank will close 31 of its 270-plus branch locations effective at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 30, the bank announced today.

According to a release from Arvest on Wednesday, the move comes in response to “significant changes in customer banking preferences.”

The closures will affect two locations in Fayetteville, two branches in Fort Smith, one in Rogers, and seven other Arvest locations around the state.

According to Arvest, there has been a significant shift in the “balance between branch transactions and digital banking,” and more than one-third of the facilities set to close are “limited-service branches.”

“The vast majority of impacted branches are in markets with other nearby branches available to serve customers,” the company said in its release.

Arvest anticipates there will be a limited number of associates affected by these changes. Well-trained and committed associates are the pillar of Arvest’s success and it is the bank’s desire to retain as many associates as possible by helping them secure other roles at Arvest locations.

Arvest’s “branch transformation strategy” includes plans for construction of eight new facilities and 15 remodeling projects over the next 12-18 months, while the bank also plans to deploy 38 additional ATM with ‘Live Teller’ machines throughout its network, which allow customers to communicate with Arvest tellers via a video screen and complete more types of transactions than a traditional ATM.
