HOMELESS and BANKLESS: Banks closing their branches as online banking grows; robberies traumatize rural banks; failures at much lower rate than recent years

The building was part of the brand but today it sits empty with a ‘for lease’ sign nearby and a homeless man camped out on the front porch during what formerly was during business hours.
Now the bankless joins the homeless.
