US Banks Decide On Closure Strategies Amid Covid Surge


According to Business Insider, as coronavirus cases continue to increase, US banks are evaluating their branch closures based on a location-by-location strategy. Although none of the four largest banks in the U.S. have announced closures, smaller banks are making big changes. Some are limiting in-person banking to appointments only, opening drive-thru service, and even closing branches if they are located in COVID hotspots. However, new shifts in consumer habits may allow banks to close during the surge, and even permanently in the long term. According to Business Insider, there is an uptick in digital banking. It's up over 73%, with an expected increase to over 79% in the next five years.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
