Umpqua Bank to add new downtown Boise branch

Portland-based Umpqua Bank has filed to remodel the vacant Bank of America branch at Capitol & Front.  Umpqua entered the Idaho market with the purchase of Sterling Savings Bank in 2014.  The B of A branch has been vacant since the company sold its Boise-area branches to Washington Federal which already had a location a few blocks away downtown. Umpqua has an existing branch up the street in the Veltex Building at 4th & Main

Bank musical chairs, if you will.
