The Bank of Montreal is testing so-called micro branches in high-density urban areas, with a small staff able to provide mortgages among other services -- an old idea that may skirt concerns about the banks.

    TD did in it in the mid '90s when they put sub branches in Walmart stores.. but just ask any of the Td staff how much they enjoyed working with a Walmart crowd... not exactly the type of clients they were looking for... not a success story..

    Once an advisor becomes experienced and competent, they either move up the ranks and out of retail branches or they move out of the banks altogether...

    That's just a natural progression..

    It was only a few years ago that BMO was closing all their retail spaces that they had in local grocery stores in the Halifax, N.S. area. I guess they had a change of heart. I wonder what has change?
