There is a Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Chase & Robo Bank in town. As far as shopping, we are limited to Target, Walmart, Kmart & JC Penney's. There are also several boutique stores on 6th(Main)St. If you want a mall you will be traveling to Fresno, Modesto or San Jose (all 1- 1 1/2 hours away). Merced Mall is not worth the drive, unless you have other business there. There is only one public junior high in town, Los Banos Junior High on San Luis St. There are also 2 private schools in town that are K-8th. The first is OLF and is affiliated with the Catholic church. The second is Seventh Day Adventist and is affiliated with their church, but many people of other Christian churches send their children there. There is also a large group of home schoolers in town. The Hospital is located in the middle of town at 520 W. I St. There is an ER, Med/Surg, L&D and small ICU. There are few specialist in town, so you may need to travel for orthopedics and other specialty care. Hope that helps.
