A statement from Joanne Curran, a Union Bank spokesperson, in response to being asked, “Can you tell me the timeline of the closing, the reasons the branch is closing, and any plans for the disposition of the building?”

Her email response was, “The branch is being consolidated with Union Bank’s Hollister Main office. We also operate branches in Hollister Downtown and Prunedale which are nearby.”


“San Juan Bautista is scheduled to close on July 25, with the Hollister branch ready to receive customers the following Monday, July 28. Note that we will continue to operate a full-service ATM in San Juan Bautista at the former office location so customers can conveniently make deposits and withdraw cash. Union Bank owns the building and is evaluating options on the property.”


“The bank made the difficult decision to close the branch after carefully weighing a variety of factors, including profitability, the area’s growth potential, the on-going customer shift to online and mobile alternatives, and how Union Bank can best serve this community over the long term. This analysis indicated that the potential for this branch is not where it needs to be.”
