    How many TSB banks have already closed?

    In November 2019, TSB shut 82 of its bank branches as part of its closure programme to turn a profit of between £130million and £140million.

    Just last year the company closed 164 branches, equivalent to a third of its sites.

    The bank has further accelerated its closure plan due to the impact of the pandemic and changing shopping habits as consumers move online.

    What has TSB said?

    TSB’s chief customer officer Robin Bulloch said: “Closing branches is an incredibly difficult decision to take, but we have to respond to the changes in the way people bank and provide the right mix of services for all our customers now and into the future.

    “These changes allow us to maintain an extensive branch presence across the country.”

    "They are accompanied by a significant investment programme to upgrade branches to better suit customer needs, and, where it takes longer to get to the nearest branch, we will introduce more ‘pop-up’ services in communities,” he added.

    TSB said there will be no closures where it is the only bank left in the area, and in these cases it will open 10 more pop-up branches.

    The pop-up sites will be in Bishops Stortford, Camberley, Fort William, Greenwich, Harlesden, Louth, Redcar, Stranaer, Thurso and Tunbridge Wells.

    Why are these bank branches closing?

    According to the company, these branches carry out a third fewer transactions compared to TSB’s national average.

    The sites also have a Post Office or free to use ATM within a mile.

    More people using online banking services is having an effect on the amount of bank branches on high streets.
