HSBC to permanently close 69 stores including the Pinner branch

HSBC has announced that it will be closing 69 of its bank branches across the country, including the popular Pinner branch.

The banking giant says that it will begin closing the branches from July onwards. The HSBC in Pinner is set to close in early September.

Jackie Uhi, head of HSBC UK’s branch network, said: “The way people bank is changing – something the pandemic has accelerated.

“Our branches continue to support people with their more complex banking needs, but the way we can do this has also evolved, with the addition of banking hubs, community pop ups and continued use of the Post Office network.

“Rather than a one-size-fits-all branch approach, it’s an approach built around the way different customers are choosing to bank in different areas.”

The closures will affect the jobs of around 400 staff however HSBC have said that they redeploy impacted staff.
