WILMINGTON, Del., May 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WSFS Financial Corporation (Nasdaq: WSFS) (“WSFS”), the parent company of WSFS Bank, has completed the sale of five Beneficial Bank retail banking offices in New Jersey with approximately $180 million in deposits to The Bank of Princeton (“Bank of Princeton”), a New Jersey-based financial institution. The sale includes five Beneficial retail banking offices in Bordentown, Browns Mills, Chesterfield, Deptford and Sicklerville, all in New Jersey.
WSFS previously announced a retail banking office optimization plan to consolidate and divest of 30 retail banking offices, or 25%, of the combined WSFS and Beneficial retail network.

Most of the consolidations will be completed during the conversion and rebranding of the remaining Beneficial banking offices in late August 2019. Upon completion of its optimization plan, WSFS Bank will serve Customers of the Greater Delaware Valley from 90 retail locations in Delaware, the City of Philadelphia, Southeastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey.
“We are pleased to have partnered with Bank of Princeton on this important transaction and believe that the Associates and Customers at these locations are in very good hands,” said Rodger Levenson, President and CEO of WSFS. “The sale of these five offices marks another significant milestone on our journey to integrate Beneficial Bank into WSFS Bank.
