The bank on High Street in Congleton will be shutting in September. Confirming the closure, a spokesperson for Barclays stated that the decision was made due to more and more customers moving to online banking. It has seen a 59 per cent reduction in counter transactions in the two years to March 2020. The Barclays spokesperson said: “The decision to close a branch is never an easy one. However, customers are increasingly using alternatives to branches to do their banking. As a result, we are seeing a sustained fall in branch visits across the UK.

The spokesperson added: “We will work with our customers and provide alternative options to ensure they can continue to manage their money and receive financial expertise when required. This includes working with the local community to find different, more flexible ways for our colleagues to continue to provide local banking support, such as through pop-up presences.” The firm said the next closest Barclays to Congleton is the Kidsgrove branch on Liverpool Road. This is around seven to eight miles away, or a 15 to 20 minute drive. NEWSLETTER: Sign up for CheshireLive email direct to your inbox here
