I would imagine that banks make their money primarily from loans and business banking, PNC in Clairton is more or less a check cashing center for people who receive their government assistance at the end of the month. As long as there is money on deposit or business banking to go with it I would think they could survive, however there is only a handful of business left in that town. I recall a recent armed robbery at their ATM where a man's dog was shot and killed as the victim tried to retrieve the remaining few dollars from his account. What business would want to operate in a town where their customers aren't even safe. And NO, the answer is not having a police officer walking the streets alone in an attempt to portray that the community is safe place. Nobody is fooled and this is a waste of resources in my honest opinion.
