HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) —  In the months ahead, all 10 of Santander Bank’s Maryland branches will be closed.

The Spanish-owned company has decided they will focus on its main markets as part of a new growth strategy, spokeswoman Nancy Orlando tells The Herald-Mail.

Maryland customers will still be able to access their accounts on Santander online and continue to bank with the company.

Santander has a Boston-based unit of Banco Santander S.A., which is based in Madrid.

Three branches are in Hagerstown, along with others in Frederick, Harford, Montgomery and Baltimore companies. Santander took control of Sovereign Bank branches in 2009.
