DISAPPOINTMENT has been expressed by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) after HSBC decided to close 62 of its local branches, including Warwick.
The latest round of closures will leave smaller businesses without access to counter services – including basic functions such as depositing cash takings.
HSBC is among banks to have teamed up with the Post Office to expand counter services for small businesses and consumers.
Paul Rogers, FSB Coventry and Warwickshire, said: “It is very disappointing more local bank branches are being shut down.
“FSB have spoken directly to HSBC about this to make sure bosses are well aware of the impact these closures will have on our members and to discuss alternative ways of providing the banking services they need.”
