Not content to destroy the usefulness of just two prime locations in Georgetown, Chase Bank is going to bring a third goddamn location to Georgetown.
Specifically, they will be opening an ATM-only location at 3405 M St. They applied for a big neon sign for this location as well, although it is unlikely to be approved. Their intentions could not be more clear: to plaster the neighborhood with as much advertising as possible. There is absolutely no need for three different Chase locations in a neighborhood already drowning in superfluous bank branches. There is no way they will ever justify the opening of these three branches based upon ATM fees or whatever. It’s 100% about getting its name and logo in front of as many people as possible.
And in the process they’ve taken what could (again) be a truly community defining property, the old Neam’s Market, and will soon convert it into a suburban style drive up useless bank branch.
If you care about Georgetown, don’t ever buy any Chase banking products. They are terrible neighbors. Oh and don’t forget they got $12 billion dollars of bailout money when millions of Americans were losing their houses. They are a bad company! Don’t do business with them!
