As a reminder, most banks are closed this coming Monday, May 30, 2011, in honor of Memorial Day.
Memorial Day is an official federal holiday, as mandated by the U.S. government. Courthouses and government offices as well as the New York Stock Exchange are closed on Memorial Day. The decision of whether or not to close down for the day is left to individual banks’ discretion.
MyBankTracker.com called the banks listed below and found that nearly all of them were closed. The one exception was TD Bank which prides itself on having longer hours than any other bank. TD Bank customers can go to the bank as they normally do this Monday.
Bank Name Open/Closed

PNC Bank Closed*
TD Bank Open
U.S. Bank Closed
Wells Fargo Closed
* “With the exception of supermarkets.”
Other Banking Options
If you need to do some last-minute banking, a good option would be to explore your financial institution’s online banking services. Most banks offer these online services:
- You can transfer funds within your account.
- Check your current balances across multiple accounts.
- Review transactions that are available online for your linked accounts.
- You can re-order checks, copies of paid checks, request copies of statements, stop payment on checks and change address and phone numbers if needed.
In addition to the online banking options, you can usually get a hold of a customer service representative through your banks telephone services.
We included ten of the biggest banks in America for our list, so if you do not see your bank on this list or have additional questions you can call the customer service representative at your branch. Most banks will have a recording with their Holiday Hours for those customers who did not realize Memorial Day was so close and may need to get some extra cash.
If your bank is not listed and it is opened, people will be interested, so feel free to post that in the comments section below or in our Community.
