PNC has added a mobile bank in an area outside Wilmington as part of a branch expansion and renovation program.

The nationwide plan includes spending about $1 billion to open more than 100 new locations and renovate more than 1,200 existing locations by 2028.

PNC spokesman Jason Beyensdorfer said no new branches are planned in the First State, although a few branches are likely to see renovations. PNC has one of the largest branch networks in Delaware.

The PNC mobile bank, one of 10 in its nationwide network, is making scheduled stops at the Goodwill headquarters near. Wilmington, according to Beyensdorfer.

“From Philadelphia to Delaware to Southern New Jersey, we are committed to delivering PNC’s retail banking services to all of our customers and community members,” said Travis Branch, PNC retail banking executive vice president and market manager.” These services are a vital ingredient in helping create communities that are economically vibrant. The mobile branch represents the fulfillment of our goal of making banking solutions easier than ever to access within the city and beyond.”


PNC will build and open new branches in newer markets, including Austin, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Miami, and San Antonio, among others as a way to build a nationwide footprint. PNC has

Like most long-time banks in Delaware, PNC has been selectively closing branches in Delaware that are close to another office.

Despite customers turning to online banking, banks are not abandoning branches. In fact, example, Chase, the nation’s largest bank now has 11 offices in Delaware. Customers are also seeing more mailers from banks offering incentives if acccounts are switched.

“Our branch network is the heartbeat of our retail business, offering friendly and convenient service to the millions of customers who step through our doors every single month,” said Alex Overstrom, head of PNC Retail Banking. “Whether to finance a home, deposit a check, or save for retirement, our customers count on our 15,000 branch team members to support their holistic financial needs. By investing in our network, we are supporting our customers, our team members, and the communities where we live and work.”

PNC currently has about 2,300 brick-and-mortar locations across the country. In addition, the bank serves customers through more than 60,000 PNC and partner ATMs nationwide as well as through online and mobile banking platforms and its customer care center. In the Delaware Valley, PNC operates ATMS at Wawa locations.
