As from Monday, November 29 our Nationwide building society at 92 High Street is reducing its opening hours. With the growth in online banking, which mushroomed during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Nationwide is investing more in its digital services as a result.
The Rye branch will open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays but will soon close on Tuesdays and Thursdays when it appears “the branch is typically quieter”.
The building society however are keen to reiterate that they remain committed to their branches by renewing their promise to maintain at least one branch in every town or city they are currently in until 2023, a promise they are keeping.
As an alternative to an in-person branch visit you could consider using their banking app. If you need help getting started just go to nationwidedemo.co.uk. If you have any questions about the changes in opening times you can contact the branch manager, Adam Millicent, on 0345 266 0427 or email the Nationwide on email@example.com.
You can also see details of the Rye branch for the latest information and see more details on why and what they are doing.
What happens after their promise ‘expires’ in 2023 is anyone’s guess.
