HSBC in Dartford High Street to undergo temporary closure for renovation, alternative options available for customers.

A prominent bank in the heart of Dartford is set to undergo a temporary closure for renovation.

HSBC, located on High Street, will be closed for two weeks for a refresh that will include new signage and upgraded cash machines. The closure, which began on Friday (March 8), is expected to last until March 22.

Saveena Mills-Baptiste, local director of HSBC UK, reassured customers that alternative banking options are available during this time. Customers can use their nearest Post Office for day-to-day transactions, as well as online and mobile banking services. The contact centre number can also be found on the back of debit or credit cards.

For those in need of counter service, the nearest branches are HSBC Orpington and HSBC Bromley High Street.

This comes amidst a recent trend of bank closures in high streets across the country. In November of last year, Lloyds announced the permanent closure of 45 branches, including five in Kent. This was followed by NatWest Group’s plan to shut another 19 branches at the start of this year.

Barclays customers have also been affected, with the closure of the Bluewater branch on April 26 and the New Road branch in Gravesend on May 3. The closure of these branches reflects the shifting trend away from high street banking and towards online and mobile services.

However, HSBC in Dartford High Street is expected to reopen at 9.30am on March 22, providing customers with a refreshed and updated banking experience.
