Plan Ahead for Danske Bank Branch Closures Advises Consumer Council
John French, Chief Executive at The Consumer Council said: “Danske Bank customers in Larne and Ballynahinch may be worried about the news that their branch is to close. We are encouraging them to think carefully about their banking needs and then call into the branch to discuss how those needs can be met post closure. They should also enquire about the support sessions Danske plans to organise for any customers needing guidance.
“Sometimes customers are content to move to online or telephone banking. However, for other customers, a branch they can visit is important, so switching may feel like the better choice,” said John.
The Consumer Council has produced a range of materials and guides to help affected customers including a branch closure factsheet, a personal banking guide, a guide to switching banks, and a current account comparison table. All of these are available free of charge by contacting The Consumer Council on 0800 121 6022 or emailing [email protected]. Alternatively they can be downloaded from www.consumercouncil.org.uk.
