The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) has revealed a closing date for its Largs branch.

The store on Main Street will finally shut down on Thursday, October 3, 2024.

It comes after we recently reported the bank revealed it would be closing a fifth of its branches, putting more than 100 jobs at risk.

Revealing the closing date for the branch, the bank, which is owned by NatWest, said its customers 'are using digital banking more than ever before'.

According to a 'closure factsheet' report prepared by the company, the counter transactions at the Largs branch decreased by 68 per cent between 2019 and 2024.

Meanwhile, in the same period, the number of customers using mobile apps increased by 53 per cent.

The report also stated there were 10 personal customers who used the branch weekly last year and 106 business customers monthly.

Once the bank has closed in September, the RBS has said customers can make use of banking services at any Post Office, but it will leave Irvine as the only North Ayrshire town with an RBS branch.

The bank's spokesperson said: “Our customers are using digital banking more than ever before – over 80 per cent of our active current account holders now use our digital services and over 97 per cent of retail accounts with us are now opened online.

“While we are increasingly engaging our customers digitally, our branch network remains important to us.

"We commit to no further review of our Royal Bank of Scotland branch network until at least 2026.”
