When the Toronto-Dominion bank holding company acquired Commerce Bank
(Philadelphia/Mid-Atlantic region), it announced that the new entity would
continue to call branches “stores”.

McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, etc. etc. etc - all of the chains, big and

little, and lots of other food-service folks refer to their outlets (let's

be fair, calling them restaurants would be a bit of a stretch) as "stores".
