A BANK has announced it is to close more North-east branches.
The Royal Bank of Scotland’s branches in Laurencekirk and Brechin will shut their doors on November 4.
The closures come just months after RBS announced a closure in Alford.
A spokesperson for RBS said: “We are working hard to ensure there are a number of alternative ways for people in the area to continue to bank with us. We have reached an agreement with the local Post Office, (Laurencekirk) which is 0.01 miles away from the branch so that our customers can check their balance, deposit and withdraw funds, and business customers can get coinage.
“There are five Post Offices within six miles of the branch.
“We are introducing a Mobile Branch service to the community and we will be engaging with our customers and the local community to understand the best day and time for the mobile branch to visit.”
The number of transactions taking place at Laurencekirk branch has dropped by 24% since 2011.
