Will banks be open on Black Friday this year?

Many businesses, including banks, close for federal holidays like Thanksgiving, but what about Black Friday the next day?

Black Friday and Thanksgiving go hand in hand at this point and works almost as the bridge between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Many people rush to stores or online to start their Christmas shopping for the end of the year.

While it’s a popular holiday known almost globally at this point, and many businesses choose to close, it is not a federal holiday.

Banks and other federal services will operate like normal on Black Friday.

Some banks may not follow this rule, like credit unions.

This year Horizon Credit Union; Members Credit Union; Mobiloil Credit Union; Signature Federal Credit Union; Teachers Credit Union; Unify Financial Credit Union; Virginia Credit Union; and Welcome Federal Credit Union will all be closed Black Friday according to as.com.
