As we've mentioned before HERE, the Lloyd's bank was set to close on the 27th of August 2019. This closure means that the cash machines at Derry's Cross have been taken out of action as well. They've been boarded up the same day, leaving many people without any other options in the area.
The bank's management has blamed this closure on the falling numbers of customers using the branch. Apparently, only about 750 people were waling through their doors every month.
A message was posted on their window ahead of the planned closure, reading:
"This branch is closing on 27 August 2019, but your options are still open. This branch will permanently close at 4.30pm on August 27, 2019. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause."
We're a little concerned about so many banks closing branches around Plymouth's city centre, as there are far less options, especially for old people who still need to use them. We'd love to hear what you think about it, let us know by commenting on our Facebook page.
