Santander will close its branch in Reigate’s High Street on 13 June 2019 as part of a plan to shut 140 branches across the UK.
After the closure, the nearest branch will be Redhill, which will remain open.
The bank has put together an information booklet for Reigate customers.
Susan Allen, Head of Retail and Business Banking, said of the closure programme:
“The way our customers are choosing to bank with us has changed dramatically in recent years, with more and more customers using online and mobile channels. As a result, we have had to take some very difficult decisions over our less visited branches, and those where we have other branches in close proximity.
We will support customers of closing branches to find alternative ways to bank with us that best suit their individual needs. We are also working alongside our unions to support colleagues through these changes and to find alternative roles for those impacted wherever possible.”
We continue to believe that branches have a vital role to play and we will be refurbishing 100 of our branches over the next two years. We are confident that following these changes we will have the right branch network to serve our customers’ changing needs, and we expect the size of our network to remain stable for the foreseeable future.”
Santander will retain 614 branches across the country, and current and business account customers can also bank via Post Office branches.
Other banking changes in Reigate last year saw Barclays refurbished, the Holmesdale Building Society merge with the Skipton, and Natwest close.
