Well I hope the one in Hillsborough doesn’t close as I’m moving to that from the Nat.West in Hillsborough which is also closing in June ! :suspect:

TSB if it's the one opposite the pub - yes it's still there.

Maybe it's coincidental but I've yet to go in that branch and not queue.

 

Has it really gotten that quiet?

It's very rare that I've been in there and haven't had to queue.

Good decision. I imagine the staff were incredibly under-worked and realistically there shouldn't be a random Yorkshire Bank in Darnall of all places.......

 

Surprised it's taken so long for this to happen.

i dont think they will think of it as quiet as such, but they do need to close branches so they look to ones that are less busy, or in areas where they think theres less of a need

I'm afraid it's not as simple as being busy or not. It also depends on the value of the business being transacted. Clearly activity matters, but more important is what level of income comes from that activity. One way to cover costs was for the bank to make loans and to sell insurance. After problems with sales of pensions, PPI and investments customers are wary about buying anything similar that used to generate big profits.

 

With very low historical interest rates the income that used to be earned by banks on credit balances has also fallen massively. There are many ways to move money without ever entering a banking branch.
