Branch closures confirmed by Barclays

Written by:
Barclays is to close a host of branches this autumn.

54 branches will be closed by December, following the 14 branches the bank has already closed so far in 2017.

A Barclays spokesperson said the bank wanted to “evolve the shape and size of our branch network” in order to stay relevant to its customers.

The spokesperson added: “We also provide our customers with a range of digital channels to provide them with a choice of how they bank with us. The number of physical Barclays branches will reduce overall but our branch network and the colleagues who work in them remain a vital part of our offering. With customers visiting our branches less and less each year, we must constantly assess how and why our branches are used and make decisions based on that insight.”

Closures will take place between September and December, and include branches in the following locations:

  • Amble
  • Avonmouth
  • Baldock
  • Birkenhead Higher Tranmere
  • Bristol Bishopston
  • Clydach
  • Combe Down
  • Halstead
  • Kilmarnock
  • Llanidloes
  • Neston
  • Pontypool
  • Rochford
  • Tilbury
  • Woodstock

HSBC, Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds have all announced in excess of 100 branch closures for this year.

Can the Post Office help?

Even if your local bank has closed, so long as you have a Post Office in your town you can still make the most of banking services in person.

Since the turn of the year 99% of personal banking customers have been able to carry out their everyday banking needs at the Post Office, from paying in cheques to paying off credit cards, following a new tie-up between the Post Office and the nation’s banks.
