Cly­des­dale Bank clo­sure

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­nealy

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.
