Chase is currently scheduled to close more branches in October according to a new report provided by branch employees.
In New York City, Chase is set to close two locations in the coming weeks.
The branch at 86 East 98th Street in Brooklyn’s last day is October 25.
And the 3804 Nostrand Avenue location, also in Brooklyn, will close on November 2.
“Existing customers will need to travel to the next closest Chase branch.
Some customers have taken to X to beg the the bank to open up more locations in their area.
The bank responded it “keeps track of popular requests through feedback and reviews expansion plans on a regular basis”,” reports The-Sun.
“Although bank closures aren’t unusual, the ripples of the pandemic and an economic downturn are making them too common.
There’s been an increasing number of closures and bankruptcies across every industry, big banks being the last players to fall.”
According to Kiplinger, Chase closed 144 branches last year while the entire industry saw more than 3,000 bank branches close down.
The-Sun reports that “many communities will be left in a “banking desert,” which means they lack access to a bank or credit union within 10 miles.
Low-income residents and the elderly are especially vulnerable to this issue, which makes them susceptible to predatory credit interest rates and lending.”
Online banking has been the primary reason as to why more and more traditional bank branches have increasingly closed down this year.
In fact, very few if any bank branches are expected to still stand within the next few years.
“The trend will likely continue as banks face staunch competition for deposits and younger customers from online banks, fintech firms and Big Tech,” reports Kiplinger.
