U.S. Bank announced today that it will close its offices and branches at 1 p.m. local time on Friday, June 19 in recognition of Juneteenth.
“The events of the past few weeks have changed the conversation and added a sense of urgency that has motivated more people across the globe to act to address social injustice. That begins with acknowledging our rich and diverse history,” said Andy Cecere, chairman, president and CEO of U.S. Bank. “We are encouraging our employees to use this time to serve in our communities, commit to inclusion and advocacy, or simply educate themselves on this very important topic.”
Because Juneteenth falls on a Friday and many U.S. Bank customers need in-person banking on a day that may be a payday, in-person banking services will be available until 1 p.m. Customers are encouraged to access mobile and digital banking services or its ATM network that afternoon. Many of the more than 2,700 U.S. Bank branches in 26 states also offer in-person banking – lobby or drive-thru – on Saturdays.
U.S. Bancorp, with more than 70,000 employees and $543 billion in assets as of March 31, 2020, is the parent company of U.S. Bank National Association, the fifth-largest commercial bank in the United States. The Minneapolis-based bank blends its relationship teams, branches and ATM network with mobile and online tools that allow customers to bank how, when and where they prefer. U.S. Bank is committed to serving its millions of retail, business, wealth management, payment, commercial and corporate, and investment services customers across the country and around the world as a trusted financial partner, a commitment recognized by the Ethisphere Institute naming the bank one of the 2020 World’s Most Ethical Companies.
