HSBC to close 114 branches next year due to online banking - full list of affected banks and closure dates

HSBC has explained that the rising popularity of online banking has led to the highstreet bank to shut down 114 branches across the UK.

HSBC will shut down 114 of its branches across the United Kingdom, the bank has confirmed. Officials have blamed a decrease in the number of customers opting for in person banking.

The firm has revealed that the number of customers visiting their sites has reduced by 65% over the last five years. A total of 97.5% of all of HSBC banking transactions are now taking place online instead.

In a statement, a HSBC spokesperson said: “The decline in branch use has accelerated so much since the Covid-19 pandemic that some of the branches closing are now serving fewer than 250 customers a week. People are changing the way they bank and footfall in many branches is at an all-time low, with no signs of it returning.

“The decision to close a branch is never easy or taken lightly, especially if we are the last branch in an area, so we’ve invested heavily in our ‘post closure’ strategy, including providing free tablet devices to selected branch customers who do not already have a device to bank digitally, alongside one-to-one coaching to help them migrate to digital banking."

HSBC has confirmed the full list of affected branches across the UK, as well as the date that it will shut its doors for good. Here is everything you need to know.
