It was announced on Sky Business news this morning that more branches of the Spanish owned Santander Bank are set to close. The reasons given by the bank are owing to the changes in customer behaviour since the start of the pandemic. The bank also said that most of those affected are less than three miles from another Santander branch. All its current and business account holders can continue to bank at 11,000 Post Office branches nationwide.
Amongst the seven in West Yorkshire to close is the Santander Bank office in Brighouse. This will close on July 21, 2021 and will inevitably leave a big gap on Commercial Street. Following other bank closures over the last couple of years the number of banks in Brighouse are disappearing very fast.
