Clydesdale ‘super-branch’ reshapes banking
The new facility – housed in a former Waterstones bookshop in George St – replaces the bank’ operations in the Clydesdale Plaza offices in Lothian Road.
It also provides banking services to customers whose branches are among those being closed in a rationalisation of the network.
As well as Festival Square in Lothian Road, the branches in Hanover Street, Nicolson Square and Leith Walk are shutting among 79 being closed across the UK, of which 40 are in Scotland.
The new customer centre will employ 50 staff, including those staff transferring from other locations.
There are a number of rooms available for use to business customers.
Richard Smith, the bank’s head of customer banking for Edinburgh, said: “These new premises will help customers bank the way they want to today.”
