It looks like Southport's Lord Street could be ready for a new trendy wine bar or restuarant as the historic building at 269 Lord Street of the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) is set to close its doors in March 2022.

Having previously closed RBC branches in Ainsdale and Churchtown this will leave Southport without any RBS branch. Customers are advised to use the Natwest branch on Lord Street instead.

A Royal Bank of Scotland spokesperson said: “As with many industries, most of our customers are shifting to mobile and online banking, because it’s faster and easier for people to manage their financial lives.

“We understand and recognise that digital solutions aren’t right for everyone or every situation, and that when we close branches we have to make sure that no one is left behind.

“We take our responsibility seriously to support the people who face challenges in moving online, so we are investing to provide them with support and alternatives that work for them.”

The firm said it knows that for some customers, the closure of their branch can be a worry, particularly when they are uncomfortable or unable to use our digital banking services.

For many, all they need is a little help, which is why RBS and NatWest have a dedicated support line for customers who are over 60 which is open 8am to 8pm seven days a week with shorter waiting times – 0800 051 4177.

Customer Care experts will be able to guide customers through how to register and use online and mobile services.
