THE HALIFAX branch in Denbigh is set to close in December, due to the huge drop in footfall at the site.

Located on the High Street, Halifax confirmed the branch would close on December 4, 2023, adding that branch transactions at the Denbigh branch fell more than 69 per cent between 2017 and 2022.

The bank said the nearby Post Office, at 20 High Street, offers personal and business customers everyday banking services, access to cash, paying in of cheques, and more.

The nearest free-to-use ATM is a short walk away (0.05 miles), and there are 8 free-to-use ATMs within 1 mile of the closing branch.

A Halifax spokesperson: “As many customers now choose to bank online or through their mobile app, visits to our Denbigh branch have fallen over recent years.

“The local Post Office offers everyday banking, with cash also available at close by free-to-use ATMs, alongside other ways to bank such as online, phone and mobile banking services.”

In the run up to the branch closure, Halifax said its branch staff would be on-hand to offer support and guidance on the ways customers can bank with them.

After the branch closes the company will have a community banker visit the area, who will continue to offer face to face support for as long as the community needs it. 

The bank said it would discuss with communities which locations would be appropriate for its community banker to set up in, and on which days.

The nearest branches for Halifax customers in the Denbigh area are in Mold and Rhyl.
