East Penn went to hell ever since Harleysville took over,You used to be able to get personalized quick service, Now you have to go through all kind of red tape to get anything

Too bad, Harleysville used to be very strict about lending because it held onto loans instead of flipping them into CMOs, etc. That's the neat thing about finance: Sins will come out sooner or later.

Did they lend to THP Builders that was located in Harleysville? I have been a long time customer at East Penn Bank. Now that Harleysville is in the picture, I have had some errors. I watch my accounts daily online.

As a long time East Penn account holder I was disapointed when Harleysville took them over. I liked having a small hometown bank. Guess I'll have wait and see if it gets screwed up. (again)

East Penn use to be a good bank, until it was taken over by Harleysville. Is there any private type banks in the Lehigh Valley yet?

Yes, some - Embassy is good.

I feel the same about East Penn since Harleysville took over. A marked decline in the quality of their customer service. Anyone know of any banks or credit unions (other than Embassy) that are locally-owned?

Embassy is fine if you are not in a hurry. The catch with these local banks, such as KNBT (which was much better before the merger) is that if you travel a lot you are stuck paying a lot of ATM fees.

Customers won't notice a change in service, huh? Gee, I just received a letter stating that my loan has been sold to another company. No change in service? How about I can't take my payment to a HNB branch now? Thanks a lot.
