TSB closing branches - is one yours?

217px-TSB_Bank_logo.svg TSB are closing 17 branches, even though not too long ago they were promising that they were all set to grow.

The bank are closing the branches where there's another one nearby and they say that this won't result in any job losses. Last year, TSB said they were opening up 30 new branches, which could still be happening, but for the moment, there's going to be less banks about.

Chief executive Paul Pester is looking forward for the company, but will have to deal with a proposed £1.7billion takeover by Spanish bank Sabadell.

TSB's profits are up by 153% to £34m in the first three months of the year, so it looks like TSB know what they're doing. However, dealing with the branch closures, which are all over the country, here's a list of the outlets in question:

  • Ap
    Not too bad and makes sense there are 4 TSB's on union St in Aberdeen so closing 2 is not the end of the world!
  • Censorship a.
    Considering their incompetence, I am surprised they arent closing all of them, I spent 3 MONTHS trying to get them to open an account for my wife - they just kept losing the paperwork, or sending it to the wrong office, or destroying it by accident (had all three excuses given to me).

What do you think?
