But in doing this are they not homeless for some time?  Isn't this bad business?

Lol they won't be homeless. They will probably just find some retail space nearby to rent for a couple years, then move back in if they see fit. There's lots of retail space in Uptown to choose from.

It's only one branch of many, anyway. Having it closed and dispersing staff to other branches would work (and I say this as someone who uses this branch). They have options.
