Changes in the Banking Landscape: North Carolina to See Multiple Branch Closures This Summer

Ash Jurberg

Several major banks are closing locations in North Carolina. Check the list below for the latest closures and to see if you will be impacted.

The number of bank locations closing across the United States continues to increase as major banks push customers toward online banking.

Each week the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) releases a bulletin of banks set to close, and the list continues to grow. The banks are required to provide 90 days advance notice of a location closing.

According to data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), approximately 8,000 banks were in operation in 2000, but by 2022, this figure was halved.

While some people do their banking online, many still prefer to visit a branch to conduct their finances so these closures will cause some concern to some customers.

Below are the bank locations set to close in North Carolina over the summer.
