Last year the United States saw the highest number of bank closures since the 2008 recession, with more to come this year.

US Bank announced earlier this year they will be closing branches across the country in 2024, including two in Minnesota and two in Wisconsin.

"Clients’ banking preferences and behaviors are changing, including a rapid migration toward digital and mobile banking platforms, and a desire for greater simplicity," US Bank Regional Communications manager Jake Holtrop said in a media release.

Just look around, and you'll see people glued to their smartphones, handling everything from paying bills to transferring funds. It's all about convenience and efficiency these days.

Think about it, when was the last time you stepped foot inside a local bank branch? For some, it may be a daily routine for business transactions or maybe you work at a bank, but for others like me, I can't remember the last time I needed to go to a physical bank location. 100% of my banking is now done online.

"As we evolve along with our clients, we are reevaluating our physical footprint, and in some instances, consolidating branch locations in select markets. Although we are closing some branches, we continue to open and enhance others, as well as rapidly enhancing our digital capabilities,” Holtrop continued.
