ARE BANKS OPEN ON BLACK FRIDAY 2022?
- Yes, all banks will be open on Black Friday on November 25 2022.
This includes JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, U.S. Bancorp, Goldman Sachs and other banks across America.
Banks are open because Black Friday is not a federal holiday, it is just a shopping season before Christmas where products are hugely discounted.
Black Friday is celebrated across the globe, not just in America, and banks will be open in every country worldwide on November 25.
BANKS ARE CLOSED ON THANKSGIVING
Banks might be open on November 25, but they will be closed the day before, on November 24 2022.
That’s because it’s Thanksgiving, the annual American holiday on which people give thanks for the blessing of the harvest.
Thanksgiving falls on a different date each year, but is on the fourth Thursday in November and is always a federal holiday.
Banks, post offices, schools and many other establishments have to close by law. Shops and restaurants also often have shorter opening hours.
