On Monday, we celebrate the man who embarked on the voyage that discovered this great nation — Christopher Columbus. Although Columbus Day is a federal holiday, some banks will remain open under normal business hours and the stock market will be up and running as usual too.
That means that avid investors will be able to continue watching the red and green arrows of their investments on Monday, but consumers who need to conduct certain in-person banking transactions should head out to a bank branch as soon as possible.
MyBankTracker has listed the Columbus Day bank hours for the largest U.S. banks below:
Columbus Day Hours 2012
|Bank of America||Closed|
Most of the biggest banks in country, except for Chase, Wells Fargo and TD Bank, will be closed in observance of Columbus Day. HSBC branches may be open depending on the location. Also, note that some banks have offices within retail locations, such as supermarkets and malls. The hours for the locations can vary — it is best to call beforehand to see if they’ll be open.
Remember that you can also use online, mobile or ATM banking to perform most banking transactions that do not require a teller or banker. If you are waiting on a deposit or check, it may take an extra business day for the funds to clear.
Many American workers will have the day off, many will not. If you are lucky enough to be in the former group, enjoy it!
