On 4 May 2021, TSB bank, Skelmersdale branch, 42 The Concourse, WN8 6NQ is due to close. This will doubtless be disappointing to TSB’s customers in Skelmersdale. However, alternative banking provision is available to local residents at post office branches nearby.
The nearest post offices to the closing TSB bank, Skelmersdale branch are:
|1. Skelmersdale PO
|2. Ashurst PO
|3. Digmoor PO
Each of these branches offers banking services – including deposits, free cash withdrawals and balance checks, as well as offering face-to-face access to government services, bill payment, foreign currency, travel insurance and, of course, postal services. There are currently 2,000 free-to-use ATMs installed across the UK post office network also.
Post offices are proving vital to retaining people’s and business’s access to cash as the banks continue to desert the high street in order to cut costs and increase their profits.
“Every post office plays a vital role within the heart of the local community. Post offices provide a reliable and essential service which has continued at a high standard across the whole of the UK throughout the pandemic.” Ruth Buckley Salmon of the NFSP.
