JPMorgan Chase says it will close 20% of its branches because of the coronavirus pandemic...
Good idea. Thanks for the warning (even though I haven’t had one for many years.)
I highly doubt they will not make provisions for people to clean out their boxes.
Ours are at a main branch/division bank.
Its too late. Temporary hours close at 4pm
Thanks. They don’t want to catch the disease from customers. Banks are keeping drive through banking (ATMs) and online banking open, though. At least some of them are also doing lobby business by appointment with extra precautions.
Thanks for posting. BUMP!
Don’t want to handle that dirty money. Hey! I have a great idea! Lets go cashless. All you need is a harmless chip inserted into your left hand or forehead. Problem solved.
Go tomorrow if your bank/branch is still open. This is not going to be limited to Chase for very long.
I stopped by the bank today. For self-distancing good practice, they closed the lobby and are taking transactions at the drive-up only. That’s where every customer handles the plastic cylinder. The window where you’d drop a deposit into a drawer — that’s closed. No, you have to paw the plastic container with both hands, twice: once to load it and once to get your receipt.
Better for them, not for you.
But is this really a surprise?
I mean, hey, it’s a bank. ;-)
Watch for reduced cash withdrawal limits soon.
Are you kidding? There is PALLETS of cash at local depositories. Just gotta watch for inflation.
I had a great experience today. Pulled out several thousand for my 78 year old mother and went to get her jewelry. I had to make an appointment and we practiced safe distancing and PPE (gloves, hand sanitizer etc). No one was sick or coughed. Good experience , but a little weird.
If it’s not in your hand and you are not able to defend it with a gun, YOU don’t own it. - slightly paraphrasing Ann Barnhardt
But...wait...my characters on the screen...LOL!
did that a few yrs ago...
