Thread Name: BS: Bank Branch Closures
Subject: RE: BS: Bank Branch Closures
I still use cash all the time.

I go to my branch at least once a week. I would say that 99% of the time there are always other customers there. No doubt they are considering closing the branch at sometime in the future. It would be nice to think that they might talk to the customers before they make that decision. Somehow I doubt it.

I do realise that a lot of younger people prefer cashless transactions. A growing number of older people are also going cashless. It is also more helpful for a lot of businesses. There was less use of cash during the covid restrictions but I have seen reports that the use ofcash has started to increase again. When money is tight cash does help in controlling your spending.
