1. NO POVERTY

List of bank branches closing in October and November: Wells Fargo, Santander, Bank of America…

Written by Amanda



As bank customers move online and make fewer trips to their local branches, many national financial institutions are closing down locations. This is not a new trend. Insider Intelligence reported that between 2017 and 2021, nine percent of all branches — around 7,000 locations— shut their doors.

The branches currently being shut are typically found in cities where another location exists, leaving customers with an office in case they require in-person assistance. For example, Bank of America is closing a branch in San Marcos, Los Angeles, and Anaheim, all home to additional locations.

“More customers choosing to bank with us online”

“Like many industries, our customers’ preferences have changed, with more customers choosing to bank with us online,” Santander said in a statement to customers.

“Therefore, we are reimagining the customer and employee experience by simplifying our processes, refining our branch footprint, and increasing our investment in digital capabilities to align with the evolving needs of our customers.”

In a similar vein, Wells Fargo said: “We continuously evaluate our branch network in light of changing customer needs, the increase in the use of digital banking and market factors.”
