WaMu scales down after merger with Chase

This was mentioned the other day on another thread – and if I opened my mail on a regular basis, I would have known that sooner.

But the Washington Mutual Bank branch at 222 Washington Street is closing on February 9, 2009 – leaving the 14th and Garden branch as the sole WaMu location. However, since they’ve merged with Chase – customers of both banks will have two locations in town later this year.

Is anyone customers of either bank? How do you like them?

    I love how they say they’re “moving”..will they be bringing all the furniture, desks, teller windows, chained pens, and employees up to the new locale?

    This website has such a negative “undertone” on it lately. honestly, it’s too depressing for me to read. H411 you need to spice things up a bit. Too many nasty people with nothing good to say.

    I second potatochip. A nicer, civiler tone would be much more pleasant.

    Just for the record, you’re the person who went around screaming “MURDERER!!!” for months after that accident on the viaduct, right?

    I agree, censorship has gone rampant on this site. I heard panicmule was blocked a number of times because he pointed out the negativity on this site.

    Don’t blame the messenger folks. The branch closed. I reported it. End of story.

    When new businesses open, I report that too.

    This is reality folks – if you don’t like it, and want me to sugar-coat things with unrealistic bullsh*t, then I cannot help you.

    And for the record – complaining is a form of negativity.

    Here’s a smile for some positivity: :mrgreen:

    Hey King of Rock (and everyone else for that matter):

    “I heard” is a crock of shit. You have no idea how this site runs, how messages get held for moderation, or get automatically classified as spam. You have a problem with me or Hoboken411? Take it up with me in email.

    If your message doesn’t appear right away, it could be for a multitude of reasons.

    If you want to know more – READ THE POST RULES and that will tell you a whole lot…

    What I REALLY don’t get is how in the world King of Rock could possibly cry on behalf of panicmule’s censorship gripe.

    Haven’t you heard the saying ‘if it bleeds it reads’ ??? The more grabby, sensaltionish articles posted, the greater revenue stream generated from advertisers as the result of more web hits.

    The NY Post does a good job with this – it’s a good model to go by.
