Bangkok Governor Aswin Kwanmuang on Sunday clarified on his order of Saturday regarding closure of department stores. He said that bank branches located inside department stores in Bangkok could be open for services.
However, most banks have announced temporary closure of their branches in department stores starting from Sunday (March 22) until April 12.
Kasikornbank has closed 45 of its branches in department stores in Greater Bangkok plus three branches in Nakhon Ratchasima.
However, bank branches located on the same floor of supermarkets such as at Paragon Department store in Bangkok remain open.
Krungsri Bank has announced closure of 41 branches in Greater Bangkok but the closure list might change on Monday.
Bankers said most of their branches are located on upper floors of department stores, so they have to close them as the department stores will be closed, except in the supermarket area.
Bank customers are advised to use other branches or mobile banking channels.
