Despite this, the PRES/CEO was quoted as saying the following in the 4/25 press release; "We continued to grow our core business in the first quarter. We increased our core deposits...."
Compared to last Q1/12 you did, BUT NOT compared to 3 months ago!!!!! Don't like the direction of this statistic, and one has to assume that this will continue to trend down when closing 2 branches (33% of your branches?).....just gotta assume they will lose some customers who will choose something more convenient.for them.
