BOS branches to close
Bank of Scotland branches in the Lothians to be closed
Bank of Scotland management have confirmed that branches in Goldenacre and North Morningside in Edinburgh, and in Gorebridge and Gullane, will be closed.
Head Office have said that the proposed closures were due to “reduced or low levels of demand” and, in some cases, “because of a local overlap of branches”.
A BOS spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that we will be closing 24 Bank of Scotland branches between July and October this year.
“All of the closures announced are due to reduced or low levels of demand, and in some cases because a local overlap of branches. We apologise for any inconvenience that these changes may cause, and informed customers of their closest alternative branch.“
“We will be introducing more mobile branch services to support customers in some of our more semi-rural communities, alongside other ways to bank locally. Three new routes covering the Castle Douglas, Borders and Allness & Tain areas will stop at 16 of the 24 closing Bank of Scotland branch locations, offer services such as making deposits, withdrawing cash and paying bills.“
“We remain committed to our Bank of Scotland branch network and branches will continue to play an important role in our multi-channel approach to meeting customer needs; at the same time we are investing heavily in digital and mobile to give our customers choice.”col04
