Bundaberg Suncorp customers are threatening to leave the financial institution altogether after the closure of the Stockland Bundaberg branch was announced.
■ The post office can do all that the bank would. Just walk to the other end of the shopping centre. No big deal.
— Lisa Limpus
■ My Suncorp account doesn’t have a card, PIN or online banking. Part of my pay goes directly in, but I have to go into a branch to withdraw. I set it up that way on purpose as a way of forced saving. As I work out near Stockland, I would have been happier if they had closed the CBD branch.
— Beth Whitworth
■ The town is dying slowly and the banks of this town know it. You just have to look in the main street to its going that way. There’s no work for people if you’re over a certain age. If the retired people from other states didn’t come up and live the town would be dead.
— Darren Nelson
■ I bank with Suncorp. There really should be no need to change banks because there is a thing called online banking.
— Rachel Spencer
■ Yep we are across road from them now and will be changing if they close. We don’t have the time to be standing in massive lines in town with one bank open. It’s crazy and it’s not customer service. The lines in town branch are bad enough already.
— Shana Williams
■ Closed down our branch too and it was always full of customers. Sigh.
— Beverley Jean Moran
■ That is so inconvenient.
— Michele Trevor Darcy
■ This is really silly! Quite often there is a line up for service there so it clearly gets used.
— Tilly Tate
■ We opened our account there years ago. Never need the branch. The CBD works the one per cent of the time we need face-to-face otherwise 99 per cent is online.

■ They closed down in maryborough as well
— Molly Bridget Davis
■ The same that happens to Bank of Queensland four years ago out in that area (the building is still empty and offered for lease).
— George Nixon
■ Maybe Suncorp needs to drop their insurance as they are a rip off now.
— Michelle Smith
— Merlene Burgess
■ Well, I’ll be changing banks.
