HSBC have provided customers in Chester with an update after the city centre branch closed this week for a ‘refresh’.

The refurbishment, which began on Monday, May 13, required the bank on Eastgate Street to close, in order for internal building work to be completed.

The branch is expected to reopen at 9.30am on Tuesday, May 28.

Julie Davies, HSBC UK’s Local Director, said: “We continue to invest in our branch network to make our customers’ experience banking with us a good one. We are pleased that our Chester branch is getting a refresh, with some painting, new signage and the installation of new state-of-the-art cash machines, which we are excited about. 

“We have been talking to customers about the temporary closure for the last month, and while we are having the work done people can continue to use their nearest Post Office for day-to-day transactions, plus mobile and online banking is available 24/7 in addition to being able to call our contact centre.

 “Customers can also continue to use any of our branches with Shotton being the closest branch.”
