GLOUCESTER-The Wells Fargo Bank branch located at 2469 George Washington Memorial Highway in Hayes permanently closed its door on February 16, 2022.

C. Del Galloway, senior vice president of communications for Atlantic and Pacific regions with Wells Fargo Bank said that after extension research, it was determined the branch would permanently close.

“Wells Fargo branches are located in more communities than any other bank. We continuously evaluate our branch network in light of changing customer needs, market factors, and economic trends,” said Galloway. “We offer an omni channel experience in which customers can bank with us in a branch, online, and through our app and call center.”

Galloway said that Hayes residents are encouraged to visit the Grafton branch located at 101 Amory Lane in York County, or the Fox Mill Center branch at 6723 Fox Centre Parkway, Gloucester. The Grafton branch is located 10.5 miles from the former Hayes location, while the Fox Mill Center branch clocks in at a little over nine miles.

Founded in 1852, and headquartered in San Francisco, Wells Fargo offers banking, investment, and mortgage products and services and handles individual and commercial finance. With offices in 31 countries and territories, they have more than 7,200 locations and 13,000 ATMs.

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
