The number of bank branches and the number of people visiting bank branches has been decreasing for years. As a result of recent events, many organizations have closed branches completely, while others have reverted to auto teller operations.
Could the Coronavirus create a shift in attitude, as people are forced to bank online or on their mobile devices? More importantly, as consumers get more comfortable, and find that managing their money digitally is easier and safer, will they stop visiting their bank branch altogether … even after the pandemic ends?
