A branch of Capital One Bank on Lee Highway is set to close later this year.
Multiple readers reported receiving letters from the bank at 5222 Lee Highway — its intersection with N. George Mason Drive — telling them the branch will close on November 18.
And a teller at the bank confirmed the news on Tuesday, saying that with another branch at 4700 Lee Highway, the company made the decision to consolidate its services at that location.
“We have another branch right down the street, so it just doesn’t make sense to have two so close together,” the teller said.
The bank is across the street from a strip mall — the Garden City Shopping Center — and a couple of blocks from the Lee-Harrison Shopping Center. No word yet on what might replace the bank.
A company spokeswoman did not respond to requests for comment.
