High Street bank HSBC has announced that it will be closing 114 branches in 2023, but Barrow is not amongst them.

The bank shared that more people are choosing online banking over using a physical branch to do their banking.

HSBC found that the number of people visiting has dropped by 65% over the course of five years.

In a statement from the bank, it said: "The decline in branch use has accelerated so much since the Covid-19 pandemic that some of the branches closing are now serving fewer than 250 customers a week."

They also shared that 97.5% of its banking transactions are now done online.

Jackie Uhi, HSBC UK managing director of UK distribution, said: "People are changing the way they bank and footfall in many branches is at an all-time low, with no signs of it returning.

Barrow-in-Furness HSBC Branch and ATM at 104 Duke Street will stay open to loyally help their customers.
