Beebe Caisse to close in June

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

The ser­vice out­let of the Caisse Des­jardins du Lac-Mem­phrem­a­gog in the Beebe sec­tor will close its doors on June 6th.

Af­ter a se­ri­ous re­flec­tion on the de­ploy­ment of their ser­vices, the mem­bers of the Board of Di­rec­tors of the Caisse Des­jardins du Lac-Mem­phrem­a­gog have de­cided to re­group the two Stanstead ser­vice points into one. The Beebe Caisse will close on June 6th, 2014, along with its au­to­matic teller ma­chine. The num­ber of trans­ac­tions at this ma­chine was in­suf­fi­cient to keep it open.

“We are very aware that the clos­ing of the Beebe ser­vice cen­tre rep­re­sents a change in habit for those mem­bers that use it, es­pe­cially those who were not us­ing the au­to­mated ser­vices. We are con­fi­dent that they will quickly adapt while we ac­com­pany them in the change. More­over, they will be able to use the Stanstead ser­vice point which will re­spond to their needs. Our stud­ies showed that Stanstead res­i­dents travel over a large ter­ri­tory to make their pur­chases. It is there­fore pos­si­ble for them to make with­drawals at the de­pan­neur or the gro­cery store,” wrote the Caisse Des­jardins du Lac-Mem­phrem­a­gog in their press re­lease an­nounc­ing the clo­sure.

Clo­sures like these are par­tic­u­larly dif­fi­cult on se­niors who ei­ther have never learnt or are not equipped, some­times for fi­nan­cial rea­sons, to do their bank­ing on line, and who no longer drive or own a ve­hi­cle.
