Wells Fargo putting branches in some Kroger stores

Wells Fargo is putting branches inside Kroger stores for the first time,  the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. It's unclear how widespread they'll be, but the newspaper cites three locations in the Atlanta area.

Kroger is known for having bank branches inside its locations. Oftentimes, they're Fifth Third Bank branches. Both the grocer and Fifth Third are Cincinnati-based companies.

Of course, the local wrinkle is that Kroger is buying Matthews-based Harris Teeter. Will this mean that we'll see Wells branches inside our neighborhood Teeters?

Currently, some HT locations have SunTrust branches within them. There aren't any in the Charlotte area, but there are some in the Triangle.
