Nearly a year-and-a-half after the first one formed, the sinkholes in Georgetown are being blamed for another business casualty.
Bank of America has announced it will be closing the mobile unit it has been using since the sinkholes damaged its building.
Bank spokeswoman Nicole Nastacie said the "physical challenges" the bank has faced since the sinkholes is one of the reasons the Georgetown branch will close June 14.
"We are not able to provide the kind of customer experience our customers deserve out of our mobile unit. The banking center team at Pawley’s Island is ready to assist our Georgetown customers, or they may use our other channels such as ATM, mobile and online banking," Nastacie said.
