BofA branch remains closed

Jan. 8. Bank of America’s Cornelius branch remains closed indefinitely, except for their ATM. Customers who need to access a safe deposit box must send an email including their name, address and phone number to safebox@bofa.com .

The branch at 20005 W. Catawba did not open on Monday morning Jan. 4. There were no prior notification to customers, so it’s unlikely the branch is closing permanently.

The FDIC requires an insured depository institution to submit a notice of any proposed branch closing to the appropriate federal banking agency no later than 90 days prior to the date of the proposed branch closing. The required notice must include a detailed statement of the reasons for the decision to close the branch and statistical or other information in support of such reasons.

“We apologize to clients for any inconvenience this may have caused,” said spokesman Mark Pipitone.

“We are operating with an abundance of caution during the pandemic,” he said.

Pipitone said customers can go to www.bankofamerica.com/locator for more information.

A Google search for bank hours today said the branch reopens Monday. “We don’t suggest using Google,” Pipitone said.

However, the Bank of America web site correctly listed the branch as temporarily closed.
