Thanksgiving Day is November 27, 2014, and the banks are closed in addition to government offices and credit unions. Bank of America, Chase, PNC Bank, SunTrust Bank, Wells Fargo, Citibank, Capital One, you name it. They are all closed. Even TD Bank is closed and they are often open on many holidays. My Bank Tracker writes:
TD Bank, which calls itself “America’s Most Convenient Bank,” has built a reputation for being the big bank that remains open for business on many federal U.S. holidays. However, Thanksgiving happens to be one of the exceptions. (TD Bank may be changing its holiday schedule since we’ve noticed recently that the bank’s holiday schedule appears to show more holiday closings.) Also, in previous years, PNC Bank was known for operating limited hours (usually open until around noon) at branches that were shared with supermarkets. This year, PNC Bank said that these supermarket branches would be closed for Thanksgiving.
Banks will resume services on the following day, Black Friday. Should you wish to check your local bank branch, click here to search the bank tracker system. And, as far as bank transfers go, any transactions made on the holiday will not be processed until the following business day. Check deposits will not clear until the next business day as well. Online banking, mobile banking and ATMs will still be in operation.
There will be no mail delivery, USPS branches will not be running, all federal offices will be shut down and courts will be closed. All libraries should be closed, and trash collection should pick back up by Friday. As far as school closings go, they are all closed on Thanksgiving as well as Friday, unless noted by the individual school district. Some schools may make up snow days on Black Friday.
In most areas, parking meters may be free and there are tons of sales and restaurant deals going on, especially with Black Friday upon us.
