Barclays Kenya has commenced its earlier revealed plan to merge several of its branches in Kenya’s capital city Nairobi starting from October.
Barclays in July announced the plan to close the branches as a cost-cutting measure. BBK Marketing Manager Anne Nderi said the closures would “optimise” branch networks. It revealed that as much as seven branches across Nairobi will be closed under the new scheme.
The bank on Thursday sent alerts to customers explaining the closures while giving them alternative branches that will offer them services, Business Daily reported.
Haile Selassie branch operations will, for instance, be transferred to Harambee Avenue branch according to one of the alerts.
“Moi Avenue branch operations will be transferred to Queensway branch effective Sunday October 1. You can also do your banking via our mobile and online banking platforms or at any post office countrywide,” read the alert.
