TSB branch closures


TSB has announced that two of its branches in Cheshire will be closing next year – including Chester and Congleton.

TSB said: “We know the way many of our customers do their banking is changing and continues to change.

“In the last two years we’ve seen a 17% decrease in the number of overall transactions in our branches.

“2.5 million of our customers now choose to bank online, with over 1 million accessing their account on our mobile app.

“We want to make sure we meet the future needs of our customers, as well as having the right number of branches.

“So while we continue to invest in existing and new services and technology, this will mean closing some branches.”

It added: “Under the Access to Banking Standard we’ve committed to carrying out a local, comprehensive Branch Review to understand how any closures might affect the community, before we make the decision to close a branch.”

The closures follow similar moves by RBS last year.
