Associated Bank to close Jan.24


As the new year begins, a business long-open in Hammond will close, leaving some Hammond residents inconvenienced and out of options.

"For Hammond, it's a huge loss," said Hammond business owner Sandy Brecht, of Sandy Brecht Photography.

Associated Bank's Hammond branch will close on Jan. 24, leaving Hammond with no bank, and forcing Hammond residents to do their banking elsewhere.
