M&I Bank Closing in Port Washington
The drive-thru M&I branch in Port Washington will close in February, and the future of the building is uncertain.
The M&I branch in Port Washington, 120 E. Washington St., will be closing its doors for good on Feb. 11.
Sara Schmitz, assistant vice president of public relations for M&I, said the branch is solely a drive-up building and customers can only conduct transactions from their vehicle.
"We look forward to serving our clients at our full-service Saukville office (2.5 miles from the Port Washington location), and pledge to continue the same high level of dedicated customer service at whichever M&I location our customers find most convenient," Schmitz said.
When asked if the Saukville M&I branch will expect to see increased traffic due to this closure, manager Chris King declined to comment.
She did say, however, that the Port Washington branch will maintain a 24-hour, drive-thru ATM. At this time, the ATM is only capable of withdraw transactions. Whether it will be refurbished to include deposits is uncertain at this time, according to King.
City administrator Mark Grams said the M&I bank building isn't scheduled to be converted into anything else, and doubts if it ever will because of its exclusive drive-thru purpose.
