An Arnold bank is due to close temporarily in the autumn so it can be turned into a ‘digital service’ branch.
HSBC has announced that ‘significant changes’ to banking operations will be made at the Front Street bank during the closure.
The Arnold branch will temporarily close around 6th September 2021, whilst the transformation work is completed.
The bank say the exact date will be advertised in-branch with at least four weeks’ notice.
When it re-opens the bank will have no counters. Self-service machines will have been installed for cash and cheque transactions.
Cashiers will still be on hand in the branch to help customers use these machines and to assist with digital services.
The firm revealed in January that it would be establishing four new branch formats “in response to changing customer behaviours”. It said it was making changes to its branch network in an effort to ensure it is “sustainable and fit for the future”.
The nearest HSBC branch with a counter service will now be in Nottingham city centre.
The bank closed down its branch in Netherfield back in 2015 and it was later transformed into a coffee shop.
