Capital One Closing One of Its Rocky Point Branches

Western branch will consolidate with eastern branch, and member accounts will not be automatically transferred.

The Capital One west branch at 75 Route 25A in Rocky Point will be closing down for good on Oct. 5.

The branch will be consolidated with the eastern branch located at 366 Route 25A, and Capital One members will be able to use that location with no changes to their account.

Steve Schooff, Director of Corporate Communication at Capital One, said the difficult decision was made based on "thoughtful analysis of our branch footprint."

"The decision to consolidate branch locations is one that Capital One takes very seriously as we understand the effect that it has on our associates and customers," Schooff said. "There will be no changes to customers’ accounts or their account numbers. Customer accounts will automatically be transferred to their new branch...which is prepared to handle the new accounts."

"thoughtful analysis of our branch footprint." is another way of saying "Unprofitable waste of time and money"

No mention of any jobs that will be lost as the two branches merge. Just another example of corporate greed in the financial sector. Hopefully, another financial institution will move in....a Citibank would be nice because they have no branches in this area other that Port Jeff Station to the west and Riverhead to the east.

CVS would be good. I dont think one is within 100 yards.

How about a pizza place, chinese food or salon? We can always use another one of those too!

There is no liquor store in this strip mall, any takers?

Instead of keeping the branch where there is more room for people to drive in and park or use the drive up window they keep the place at a busy intersection where there are accidents and other traffic problems. The person who made this decision can't be very smart!!
