HSBC has confirmed that it will be closing 114 branches nationwide from next year, with two in Leeds being affected. HSBC chiefs have said that footfall in the bank’s branches is at an all-time low since customers were forced to use online banking during the Covid pandemic.

The number of people visiting an HSBC has fallen by 65% in five years, the firm said with nine out of 10 transactions being made online. In Leeds and the surrounding areas, the Ilkley branch will close on June 13, closely followed by the Horsforth branch on July 18.

An HSBC statement 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."

Jackie Uhi, HSBC UK’s 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. Banking remotely is becoming the norm for the vast majority of us. Not only can we do it anywhere at any time of day or night, but many more things can also be done at the customers’ convenience and don’t rely on a branch visit.

“Branches will continue to play an important role in day-to-day banking while providing specialist face-to-face support in moments that matter. In addition to our branch network, customers can access services through the Post Office network, our Community Pop-ups and soon-to-come Banking Hubs, alongside Live Chat, social media and through telephone banking.

“The decision to close a branch is never easy or taken lightly, especially if we are the last branch in an area, so we’ve invested heavily in our ‘post closure’ strategy, including providing free tablet devices to selected branch customers who do not already have a device to bank digitally, alongside one-to-one coaching to help them migrate to digital banking.”

HSBC will be supporting its customers by providing 1,500 free Samsung tablet devices to customers who are unable to afford equipment as well as carrying out HSCS@Home training sessions. HSBC has also attended over 200 community ‘pop-up’ events to provide additional support to customers in areas where a branch may be closing.
