Bank closing after damage by Georgetown sinkhole

GEORGETOWN, S.C. (AP) - A Georgetown bank damaged by a sinkhole almost a year ago is closing its doors.

The Bank of America branch was damaged by a sinkhole in November 2011.

The bank has operated from a mobile unit at the site since the damage occurred but now will be closing in June.

The bank decided to close the building because of the structural damage as well as changing banking habits. The bank says fewer people are making transactions at the bank.

The nearest bank for Bank of America customers will be in Pawleys Island after the Georgetown branch closes.
