The summer is officially here, at least technically! The next holiday is Memorial Day, a day we’ve set aside to honor those who have lost their lives defending our nation. And nowadays, a fantastic weekend for barbecues and traffic jams. If you’re planning on getting something done at your local bank branch, you’ll need to plan ahead. Odds are your favorite teller will be driving to a barbecue somewhere.

Memorial Day is an official federal holiday, meaning that almost everyone has the day off. The same is true for most banks, except of course for Canada-based TD Bank. See below:

Bank of AmericaClosed
Wells FargoClosed
U.S. BankClosed
Capital OneClosed
PNC BankClosed
Regions BankClosed
BB&T BankClosed
BBVA CompassClosed
TD BankOpen
SunTrust BankClosed

This of course applies only to standalone branches. Any branch locations that exist within the confines of another retail business — a supermarket, for example — will remain open. If you have any pressing banking business to take care of, you should do so Thursday or Friday, because you won’t be able to get a number of transactions done over the next three days.

Have a relaxing and safe weekend.
