Brick and Mortar


It's a trend that started before the pandemic, and I'm sure the current situation only accelerated it.

One bank branch I occasionally visit is now closed, and another branch (different bank) closes in a couple of months.

It's sad, but I do realize most transactions are now done electronically.  I hope the employees are transferred to different offices.  Good people.

We've already seen stores cut their hours.  I do miss the 24 hour supermarkets and big box stores.  With a struggling economy, expect to see more brick and mortar places trim their hours, or close entirely.
