SunTrust will keep ATM in Spencer

SPENCER — SunTrust will keep operating the ATM at its branch office in town after the office closes at the end of July.

In an email, a company spokeswoman said the decision to keep the ATM was made after letters to clients about the closing were sent out in April. SunTrust is currently the only bank in town. And despite a petition from business owners and residents of the town asking SunTrust to keep the branch open, the bank will close July 31.

It’s unclear how long the ATM will remain after the branch closes. The ATM is on the south side of the bank, which is located in the plaza on Salisbury Avenue.

Mayor Jody Everhart said the town is reaching out to other banks and credit unions about opening a branch in Spencer. He said SunTrust has a non-compete agreement with the owner of the building the branch is in restricting any other bank from going in the building for two years.

The nearest SunTrust branches are in Salisbury, one on West Innes Street and the other on Avalon Drive.
