Question Strange key remote problem

My key remote works as it should to lock/unlock the doors and open the rear. Oddly enough, however, when I park in the parking lot of my local bank, it doesn't work at all. Even if I stand right next to the car pressing the lock and unlock buttons repeatedly, nothing happens. I actually have to stick the key in the door and unlock it the old-fashioned way. This hasn't happened anywhere else but my bank parking lot and it has happened the last several times I have been there. I feel like it has happened too many times for it to be a coincidence. Has anyone else experienced something like this? Is it possible that there is some frequency being transmitted outside of my bank that interferes with the key? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks, Kaz! Glad to know it wasn't just my key playing tricks on me
