Why do banks continue to build so many new brick-and-mortar branches?


In a world where online banks offer higher interest rates on deposits and more convenience, why do banks continue to build so many new brick-and-mortar branches? Are there that many new customers?

    I wander if it also helps with their tax or investment portfolio to build bank branches each year.

    Precisely. The online presence is nice, but tends to be geared to an existing customer base for simple issues, such as cash-based transactions, loan apps, etc. Closing a loan or investment/insurance conversations usually require face to face.
