Jenkintown Wells Fargo closed, space open for business

The Wells Fargo bank at 400 York Road in Jenkintown is one of hundreds of branches to close as the mega-bank adjusts to a more electronic future. On the upside, the building’s owners have wasted no time in working with the Borough to reuse the floors above and below.

Condos and apartments have taken advantage of the top floor availability, and Diverse Dance Company, which opened in 2020, continues to operate in the building’s basement floor.

“We were sorry to hear that our Wells Fargo was on their list of closings, they gave electronic banking and the proximity of the Abington branch as factors. We don’t know what’s going in the first floor yet,” Borough manager George Locke said. “400 York Road is truly a beautiful, unique, architecturally significant building to the Borough and we are all looking forward to what the future may bring.”
