Friday Closings Affect Branches, Offices
June 17, 2020
A growing list of companies have decided to make Juneteenth, which commemorates the ending of slavery in America, a paid company holiday. PNC has decided to close early instead.
The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. (NYSE: PNC) today announced that it will close all offices at 2 p.m., local time, Friday, June 19, in observance of Juneteenth.
"If there is anything the past few weeks in our country have revealed, it's that we all need to do a better job of listening and trying to understand experiences that may not be our own," said William S. Demchak, chairman, president and CEO. "Juneteenth is a significant piece of our nation's history. Our observance is an opportunity to bolster important dialogue about the past and collectively work toward shaping a better future."
PNC's early closure will include all office and retail branch locations. PNC customers wanting to visit a branch location on Friday should make arrangements to visit prior to 2 p.m., local time. As always, PNC customers have 24/7 account access through ATMs, mobile, online, and voice banking services. Through these methods, customers can check balances, transfer funds, deposit checks or find the nearest ATM.
