Lloyds Bank is to shut 44 more banks and Halifax branches across England and Wales.
The closures will take place between September and November this year.
They will add to the 56 branches already shut so far.
The new number brings the total to 100.
It’s not been revealed how many staff will lose their jobs.
The closed branches have seen a steady decline in customers over the last five years.
Vim Maru, Lloyds retail director, said:
“Like many businesses on the high street, we must change for a future where branches will be used in a different way and visited less often.
The trade union Unite said the closures were a “bitter blow” to staff and customers.
It accused the banking group of “walking away” from local communities.
And the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) said:
“Bank branches are not only critical to those who still depend on cash – often society’s most vulnerable – they also serve as a draw for shoppers, meaning footfall for surrounding small businesses.”
Lloyds said there were no compulsory redundancies but did not disclose the number of staff working at the affected branches.
