This week is Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday sale day, so it is normal for you to wonder if bank branches will be open during these days. Next, we solve this question for you.

Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving, which falls on Thursday, November 25 this year, is a federal bank holiday. That means Chase Bank, Bank of America and Wells Fargo will be closed on Thanksgiving.

You will still be able to use the ATM, and depending on the type of ATM your bank branch has, that may mean you could still make cash deposits.

Please note that financial transactions you make with your online banking app may take an additional day to process.

Black friday

Black Friday, which falls on Friday, November 26 this year, is not a federal bank holiday. A) Yes what would you expect your local bank to be open this Black Friday.

However, some states recognize the day after Thanksgiving as a state holiday, so banks would then be closed on that day in those states.

Those 26 states are: California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Carolina from the south. , Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia.

Smaller banks or credit unions may also have shortened service hours on Black Friday depending on their staff.
