SAN­TANDER has ex­tended its branch open­ing hours after Money Mail re­vealed how banks had failed to re­sume nor­mal ser­vices after lock­down eased.

Branches will be open from 9.30am un­til 4.30pm on Mon­day to Fri­day as of Septem­ber 7. The bank had re­stricted its week­day hours to 10am un­til 3pm due to the pan­demic.

Its open­ing hours were 9.30am un­til 5pm be­fore lock­down.

San­tander’s Satur­day hours will re­turn to nor­mal, with branches open from 9.30am to 12.30pm or 4pm.

Ex­perts have warned of a cyn­i­cal at­tempt to speed up branch clo­sures, as firms will be able to claim fewer cus­tomers are us­ing them.
