PITTSBURGH — For years, customers picked up fries and burgers at the drive-thru of a fast food restaurant in a prime Pittsburgh area for eateries. Soon they’ll be pulling in to do financial transactions.

F.N.B. Corp. is putting a First National Bank branch at 1630 Penn Avenue in the Strip District, a site that previously housed a McDonald’s, according to a regulatory filing. F.N.B. confirmed the filing on Friday and said that the new branch is expected to open in early 2022.

This follows F.N.B.’s announcement last month that it is closing 21 branches across its footprint this year, including four in the 10-county Pittsburgh metro, part of a $20 million cost-saving initiative.
