Is this something to worry about?

The Citibank branch on 120 Broadway in the Financial District is selling bowls of fruit salad in the lobby for $2.50.

this is the weirdest thing ever. 30 years ago they would give you a washer dryer for opening an account. Now they sell salad?

Yeah, it was strange...This woman in the lobby all-but-blocked the doorway and invited me to buy some..."It's really good!" (It actually looked good...) I just wanted to get out of the there...and transfer my account somewhere else...

Are you sure they were selling it only for $2.50 and not $250? The way they're charging their customers with 'bank' fees and cutting costs and trying to raise capital, I wouldn't be surprised if the price is the latter.
