The Wells Fargo Branch in Downtown Toms River has made its last transaction and has now closed for good. This one hits close to home because I did some banking there and it was a convenient spot to make a deposit, cash checks, or get this bank closure hits home and I will miss it.

I received an email recently from "anonymous" and this person alerted me to the fact that the Wells Fargo Bank branch in Downtown Toms River was closing soon. In fact, the branch did close as of Wednesday, January 26th at 12 pm. The bank closed the branch and drive-up location permanently including the outside ATM. I called and confirmed this closure.
