US Bank continues closures of Idaho branches, will cut a dozen locations

Idaho's Biggest Toy Drive

US Bank will permanently close a dozen branch locations in Idaho.

The Minneapolis-based bank told BoiseDev it would not reopen some branches that previously closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, and would shut down another group just after the first of the year.

Four of the branches are in Boise, with the rest mixed in around the state. Here’s which locations will close.

Employee impacts

“These closures are part of previously discussed work that kicked off in early 2019 to optimize our branch delivery networks in response to changing customer preferences and behaviors,” US Bank VP of Public Affairs Evan Lapiska said. “Although we are closing some branches, we are continuing to open and enhance others, as well as rapidly enhancing our digital capabilities.”

Lapiska said they would work to place employees in other divisions or branches. Employees will stay wit the company until January “unless they elect to move on before that time,” he said, and receive severance.

The bank also closed a few branch locations in 2019, as BoiseDev reported at the time.

US Bank traces its roots to First National Bank of Idaho – later Idaho First Bank and WestOne Bank. Founded in 1867, it is Idaho’s longest continually operating bank in the state. At one point it operated more than 200 branches in the region, and as US Bank still operates in many of Idaho’s smaller towns.
