Clydesdale Bank closure
Staff at Clydesdale Bank described Thursday as a “sad day” as they closed the doors of the Main Street building for the last time.
The bank is the second of three to announce their planned closure in Cambuslang in the past year.
On June 8 it was one of 40 Clydesdale branches which were shut as part of a cost-cutting move to embrace “digital innovation”.
Writing on Facebook page All About Cambuslang, one member of staff said: “On behalf of my manager and the staff of Cambuslang Clydesdale Bank, I would like to thank each and every one of our personal and business customers, new and old, for all our best wishes, cards, gifts and messages. You have been too kind.
“It has been a pleasure working there the past four years and, as my local branch, I will miss it too.
“Yesterday was a sad day for us all. But I am sure the staff will welcome you all in whatever branch you decide to use in the future.”
Dozens of people commented on the Facebook post, with one woman saying: “Thank you to all staff that have looked after me and all my family for 40 odd years. It was always a pleasure to visit the bank where we were always treated politely and efficiently by all staff.”
A second said: “A sad day for Cambuslang. I have banked there for over 45 years. Wish you and your staff all the best.”
TSB is the last remaining bank in Cambuslang, but it has announced it will follow the Royal Bank of Scotland and Clydesdale and pull out of the town later this year.
All banks suggest customers will be able to maintain some banking operations at their local post office.
