A HIGH street bank in Burton is to close its doors for two weeks due to major refurbishment work.

Bosses at Barclays, based in High Street, have ‘apologised in advance for any inconvenience caused’ to customers as a result of the decision to close the site from Wednesday, March 12, while it is spruced up.

In a bid to minimise the impact on customers, a range of alternative options have been set up to help users out.

The move comes only two-and-a-half years after the branch underwent a complete refit to bring it into line with a major rebranding at the banking giant in 2011.

Barclays community leader Steven Mitchell said: “We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused to our customers while the High Street branch in Burton is temporarily closed for refurbishment.

“ We are working closely with our customers in finding alternative ways to undertake their banking during this time.

“Once reopened, the innovative new style branch will provide a new banking experience, hosting new technology to allow customers to carry out regular transactions such as paying in cash and cheques, paying bills, withdrawing and transferring money.”

The branch will close from March 12 and reopen on March 26.

Customers will be redirected to use Swadlincote and St Peter’s Street, Derby , as alternative Barclays branches while the refurbishment work is carried out.

Bosses at the branch have revealed that personal banking customers will be able to use the Post Office, based in Asda, odff Orchard Street, to complete everyday banking transactions.

More information on the plans is available by heading online to www.barclays.co.uk/ or by calling 08457 555555 between 9am and 5pm.
