TD Bank adding two more branches

TD Bank is continuing to expand in Greater Boston.

The bank, already the fourth largest retail bank in Massachusetts, recently filed plans with federal regulators to open two more branches branches on West Broadway in South Boston and on Nahatan Street in Norwood.

That’s in addition to more than a dozen branches the bank has added in recent years, including two just last month—one on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston and another on Centre Street in West Roxbury.

A TD spokesman declined to say when it might open the South Boston and Norwood branches, but said the bank is exploring a number of potential locations. The bank, co-headquartered in Maine and New Jersey, is a unit of Toronto-Dominion Bank of Canada.

Some other smaller institutions are also adding branches in Eastern Massachusetts. For instance, Leader Bank filed plans to open a branch on Massachusetts Avenue in Arlington Heights by year-end, its third branch in Arlington. And BayCoast Bank filed plans to open a branch on Airport Road in Fall River on Nov. 19.

Meanwhile, some other banks are closing offices. Citizens Bank, the second largest retail bank in Massachusetts, is shutting a branch on Thursday, in a Revere Stop & Shop that is closing; Bank of America, the largest bank in Massachusetts, is eliminating a branch on Mount Auburn Street in Cambridge in January, as part of its broader plans to consolidate branches; and Mass Bay Credit Union asked the state for permission to close its Weston branch.
