Chase Bank to Open Retail Branch in Greenville Market: Chase announced today that it will expand its retail offerings to Greenville, S.C., along with eight U.S. markets. The banking giant will also open new branches in the previously established markets of Boston, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia. The new branches are expected to open this summer. 

In 2016 Chase began offering commercial loan services to Greenville, following a move to Charlotte, and in 2018 expanded to the Charleston market.

Greenville Chase customers will have available to them the usual teller offerings, ATM, mobile apps, etc.

The bank will also be hiring an unannounced number of staff, with "entry-level employees in new markets" being "paid no less than $15-$16.50/hour" and receiving "the firm’s full benefits package, which is valued at an average of $12,000 annually per employee in this pay range," according to a company statement. 

JPMorgan Chase is among the "too big to fail" banks; Chase is the consumer and commercial banking business of JPMorgan Chase. In the lead up to the Great Recession in 2008, Chase received a $30 billion loan from the federal government to buy Bear Sterns, according to Investopedia.

Vermont senator and Democratic Party presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has previously called for the federal government to break up the "too big to fail" banks.
