Lloyds branch in Liverpool to close as dozens to go across UK

Lloyds, Halifax and Bank of Scotland are set to collectively close 60 branches across the UK.

One Lloyds bank in Liverpool is set to shut its doors shortly. The Woolton branch will be closing as of July 14, 2022.

The decision was made by parent company Lloyds Banking Group. It is due to the number of customers now using online banking reaching an all-time high this year.

Lloyds says it now has 18.6 million regular online banking customers and over 15 million mobile app users. These have increased 12% and 27% respectively in the last two years.

Vim Maru, group retail director, Lloyds Banking Group said: “Just like many other high street businesses, fewer customers are choosing to visit our branches. Our branch network is an important way for us to support our customers, but we need to adapt to the significant growth in customers choosing to do most of their everyday banking online. ”

The move comes after Lloyds confirmed plans to shut 48 bank branches last year, with 178 jobs at risk at the time – including Prescot and Runcorn branches. A further 44 closures were confirmed in early 2021.

The full list of branches that are closing this time include 24 Lloyds Banks, 19 Bank of Scotland and 17 Halifax banks.
