15 Bank of America branches will now close in October, a trend we’ve been seeing all year now.

“The second largest American bank with over an estimated $2.5trillion in assets said it would shutter 15 more branches across six states this month,” reports The-Sun.

“The company has attempted to shut down locations with duplicate branches in the same city as more customers shift to app-based banking.”

Online-only banks have become a serious competition for traditional banks resulting in the closure of several bank branches.

In fact, more than 1000 bank branches have now shuttered this year according to fresh data from the S&P Global Market Intelligence.

“The majority of Americans are concerned about widespread bank branch closures – which are hitting lower-income households the hardest. 

Growing numbers of people are being left without access to basic financial services, as big-name banks have axed more than 1,000 branches already this year,” reports DailyMail.

Data from S&P Global Market Intelligence shows a total of 1,144 national and regional banks were closed between January 1 and July 31 across 49 states – with firms pulling out of some areas at a faster rate than others.

A survey by DailyMail has found that 51% of Americans are ‘very concerned’ or ‘somewhat concerned’ about the impact of “dwindling outlets”, which disproportionately affect poorer households.

According to the analysis by research agency Opinium, 10% of Americans with a household income less than $50,000 said they do not have a local bank branch. 

As previously reported, banks are federally mandated to report branch closures to the Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC) at least 90 days before closing.

    What I don’t understand is how people can say its not his fault. Raising taxes on gas and food and everything else how isn’t it his fault. These stores keep Raising prices on everything and nobody does anything to help us get it under control. So you wonder why people leave this dam state so we can survive. But who cares as long as fat man gets what he wants.

    I don’t see 10s of thousands. It’s bad news but don’t exaggerate. It’s not the governor’s fault, corporations are making huge money on the backs of the workers.
