Sunwest Bank branch opens in Lewiston

LEWISTON, ID - The former Syringa Bank branch in Lewiston, which closed Friday, is back open Monday under a new name.

All of Syringa's six branches were taken over Friday by the FDIC marking the third U.S. Bank failure of 2014. Syringa was based out of Boise.

All of the branches re-opened Monday as part of Sunwest Bank, which is based out of Irvine, California. A news release from Sunwest said Syringa clients will be able to conduct business as usual and that Sunwest representatives will be on hand to answer any questions customers might have.
