Bank of America selling 11 Kansas branches

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Bank of America plans to sell 11 branches throughout Kansas, including two in the city of Great Bend.

The Wichita Eagle reports ( ) the branches are being sold to four Kansas-based banks.

A Bank of America spokeswoman told the newspaper Tuesday the branches being sold are located in Caney, Coffeyville, Emporia, Great Bend, Hays, Hutchinson, Independence, Lindsborg, McPherson and Salina.

The spokeswoman, Diane Wagner, said Bank of America occasionally sells branches whose closings would leave employees with few job opportunities and customers with no banking center nearby.

The Eagle listed the buyers of the 11 branches as Lyon County State Bank in Emporia; Commercial Bank in Parsons; First Kansas Bank in Hoisington; and First Bank Kansas in Salina. The sales are expected to close this summer.
