 LEAD (AP) - Wells Fargo is closing its bank branch in Lead on Friday and selling the building.

Spokeswoman Staci L. Schiller tells the Black Hills Pioneer that Wells Fargo offers a full array of services at its Deadwood bank, less than 3 miles away. She says the Lead bank doesn't have enough patronage to make it cost-effective.

No employees are losing their jobs as a result of the closure, since employees in Lead also work at the Deadwood location.
