BMO Hours on Normal Days

Most BMO branches keep pretty standard banking hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. But before heading to your local BMO branch, call ahead or check online to confirm its specific operating hours.

Is BMO Open 7 Days a Week?

BMO doesn’t stay open seven days a week. While some branches open for a few hours on Saturday, the bank stays closed on Sunday. Here’s a quick glance at the normal schedule for BMO bank branches:

Day Hours

Saturday 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (varies by branch)

Although BMO is only open for a short time on Saturday, it’s still a good option for customers who need to do banking on weekends. Call ahead to make sure that your branch is open beforehand.
