CIBC to test Sunday hours

Globe and Mail Update

The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce is testing out Sunday branch hours in select locations, in another sign of what bank executives say is an increasingly competitive market for retail customers.

CIBC said Monday that it will introduce Sunday hours in some of its Vancouver and Toronto branches starting later this year a move designed to coincide with the busiest shopping season of the year.

In June, Toronto-Dominion Bank announced it will increase its branch hours across the country beginning Nov. 1. More than 800 TD branches will be open Monday to Saturday at 8 a.m., it said.

These moves come despite the increasing number of transactions that banking customers are conducting on the Internet. The banks say branches are still key for selling new products to customers, and building a relationship with them.

Now we have a world where it's cool to have two mother's or two fathers, or double incomes and no kids. The only problem is that Canada has a negative population growth that can only be solved by a legal presumption of equal parenting. CIBC should encourage families with a mother or father or eventually the ever shrinking population growth which means the number of customers is shrinking but of course that makes as much short term sense as worrying about global warming but its a very serious problem and it will be interesting to see if CIBC ever understand that our present male gender apartheid is slowly elminating the regeneration of possible clients. 613-797-3237
