In a public notice about its impending merger with the parent company of the East Boston Savings Bank, Rockland Trust says it will close current East Boston branches in Allston, Brighton (two branches), Chinatown, Dorchester, Mission Hill, Roslindale, West Roxbury, Brookline and Cambridge (two branches), among others.
In West Roxbury, the closure will be the second bank branch to shut in recent years due to Rockland Trust expansion; earlier, the Peoples Federal Savings Bank branch on Centre Street, kitty corner from the larger Rockland Trust branch, was shut. The East Boston branch is in a refitted former Friendly's that was also briefly home to a Greek restaurant.
Rockland Trust says it will also close its own branch at 725 Centre St. in Jamaica Plain, near where an Indian restaurant was turned into a Chase branch. There is an East Boston branch at 515 Centre St., near the Curley School. The Rockland Trust branch was notable for an ATM that dispensed bills as small as $1.
