Banks as stores?
I just went to my bank's web site to find the location of an ATM. As I was browsing the page, I had the thought "where's the Store Locator link?". That got me thinking, what are banks, really, other than stores where you take out or put in money? There's the fact that they have an implied responsibility to take care of your money, but, when you think about it, a transaction at a bank is really no different than a transaction with a clerk at a store.
