An era in Jacksonville banking ended last week, an era about as old as the city itself. When Ameris Bancorp completed its acquisition of Atlantic Coast Bank, it left Jacksonville with no more community banks focused on the local market. Atlantic Coast had four branches outside of the market but eight of its branches were in Northeast Florida, so its main concentration was on the Jacksonville area.
