Chase Withdraws From Municipal Banking In New Jersey

  1. TLS should have clarified that the branches will not close. It will not affect Personal or Business accounts. As such all branches that were Bank of New York or WaMu and became Chase like the one in Shoprite Plaza or the one next to the Shell gas station on Kennedy Blvd will remain open. Chase will just no longer do business with municipalities.
