BARCLAYS are set to close the doors on their branch in Dunfermline.

The bank confirmed they will shut their High Street office for good on Friday, August 18.

A notice in the window states: "We're still here to help.

"We're changing the way we support you in Dunfermline.

"We'll still be part of your community, look out for details coming soon."

A Barclays spokesperson told the Press: "Our customers' behaviour has changed significantly in recent years, with the majority now choosing online banking.

"This is reflected at Dunfermline branch and as we adapt, we are finding new ways to support our customers by maintaining our community presence with options for customers who still require in-person support.

"In Dunfermline we plan to open a Barclays Local, a pop-up cashless banking site where customers can meet a colleague face-to-face for banking support, as they would in a branch and without the need to travel.

"We are currently working with the local community to identify a suitable location and will announce details once confirmed."

Barclays said that, when the branch closes, customers can withdraw and pay in cash to their accounts by visiting any post office, the nearest would be along the High Street at WH Smith.

Last week the bank said Dunfermline would be one of 15 closures in 2023, taking the total for this year up to 110.

The consumer group Which? said Barclays will, by the end of the year, have shut 1,070 bank branches since 2015.

Last year they axed 184.
