Old National to close nine branches in Indianapolis area

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Evansville-based Old National Bank will close nine Indianapolis-area branches by the end of the year and consolidate them into nearby branches in a move to streamline its operations, the company announced Thursday.

Old National, the largest bank headquartered in Indiana, also will close and consolidate nine other branches around the state. Old National said no jobs are likely to be lost in the consolidations because workers at all closed branches would be offered jobs at the consolidated branches.

In addition, Old National said it has struck an agreement to sell nine bank branches and $173.5 million in deposits to three banks in western Kentucky and southern Illinois. Eight of the nine branch buildings will be sold in those transactions.

“As part of an ongoing efficiency initiative, Old National took a close look at its locations, examining such items as market dynamics, deposits per branch, proximity to other offices and client traffic,” company officials explained in a prepared statement.

Old National recorded expenses of about $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2012 for those changes, the company disclosed Thursday in a securities filing. It expects additional costs of $2 million to $3 million in the second half of this year.

Old National had total deposits of more than $1.8 billion at the end of the second quarter.

The nine locations that will close in Indianapolis are inside other stores and have leases that are near their expiration.

— The Old National branch at 2810 E. 116th St. in Carmel will consolidate with a branch at 1430 S. Rangeline Road in Carmel.

— The branch inside a Marsh store at 10679 N. Michigan Road in Zionsville will consolidate into a bank in a Starbucks at 10460 N. Michigan in Carmel.

— A branch in the Marsh at 5 Boone Village in Zionsville will combine with the branch at 385 S. Main St. in Zionsville.

— A bank in a Kroger store at 1930 E. Main St. in Plainfield will consolidate with the Old National branch at 802 Edwards Drive in Plainfield.

— The bank inside a Kroger at 1330 W. Southport Road will move to 1510 W. Southport, where there is an Indiana Bank & Trust Branch. Old National agreed in January to acquire Columbus-based Indiana Bank & Trust.

— The bank in a Kroger at 11101 Pendleton Pike in Indianapolis will combine with the bank in a Starbucks at 10800 Pendleton Pike in Indianapolis.

— The bank in a Kroger at 5173 W Washington St. in Indianapolis will consolidate with the bank in a Marsh at 35 N. Lynhurst Drive in Indianapolis.

— Two banking centers—one in a Marsh at 1240 N. State St. in Greenfield and the other inside a Kroger at 10450 E. Washington St. in Indianapolis—will be consolidated into a Starbucks at 9605 E. Washington St. in Indianapolis.

The moves by Old National will reduce its total number of locations from 183 to 156.

Old National said it has 52 branches in Indianapolis and the counties surrounding it. These actions will chop that number down to 43.The company has about 455 Indianapolis-area employees.

  1. Kent's done a good job of putting together some good guests, intelligence and irreverence without the inane chatter of the other two shows. JMV is unlistenable, mostly because he doesn't do his homework and depends on non-sports stuff to keep HIM interested. Query and Shultz is a bit better, but lack of prep in their show certainly is evident. Sterling obviously workes harder than the other shows. We shall see if there is any way for a third signal with very little successful recent history to make it. I always say you have to give a show two years to grow into what it will become...

  2. Lafayette Square, Washington Square should be turned into office parks with office buildings, conversion, no access to the public at all. They should not be shopping malls and should be under tight security and used for professional offices instead of havens for crime. Their only useage is to do this or tear them down and replace them with high rise office parks with secured parking lots so that the crime in the areas is not allowed in. These are prime properties, but must be reused for other uses, professional office conversions with no loitering and no shopping makes sense, otherwise they have become hangouts long ago for gangs, groups of people who have no intent of spending money, and are only there for trouble and possibly crime, shoplifting, etc. I worked summers at SuperX Drugs in Lafayette Square in the 1970s and even then the shrinkage from shoplifting was 10-15 percent. No sense having shopping malls in these areas, they earn no revenue, attract crime, and are a blight on the city. All malls that are not of use should be repurposed or torn down by the city, condemned. One possibility would be to repourpose them as inside college campuses or as community centers, but then again, if the community is high crime, why bother.

  3. Straight No Chaser

  4. Seems the biggest use of TIF is for pet projects that improve Quality Of Life, allegedly, but they ignore other QOL issues that are of a more important and urgent nature. Keep it transparent and try not to get in ready, fire, Aim! mode. You do realize that business the Mayor said might be interested is probably going to want TIF too?

  5. Gary, I'm in complete agreement. The private entity should be required to pay IPL, and, if City parking meters are involved, the parking meter company. I was just pointing out how the poorly-structured parking meter deal affected the car share deal.
