Giving the main reasons behind the decision, the company cited the number of counter transactions going down in the last two years.

Even more, it said just 29 people use this branch exclusively for their banking, while more than a half of its customers have been using nearby locations in the last year.

Additionally, 82 per cent of customers of the branch now do their banking online and over the phone, it said.
