Is it time to switch out your bank accounts?

Three of the biggest banks in the country have been slowly closing their locations across the board and they have now announced 55 more locations that will be shutting their doors in the next month, including in New Jersey.

Although most people do their banking online or through an app, some things need to be done in person.

You don’t even realize how useful a walk-up ATM or a live teller is until it is no longer available.


Bank of America is one of the largest banks in the country. They have been closing their brick-and-mortar locations as they lean more towards online banking. But now they will be closing even more of their locations between now and March.
