BARCLAYS has confirmed plans to open a 'pop-up cashless' site in Mold. 

The news comes after the bank announced last week that its branch situated on the High Street in Mold will close its doors on June 30.

A spokesperson for Barclays said: "Our customers’ behaviour has changed significantly in recent years, with the majority now choosing online banking.

"This is reflected at [the] Mold branch, and as we adapt, we are finding new ways to support our customers by maintaining our community presence with options for customers who still require in-person support.

“In Mold, we plan to open a Barclays Local – a pop-up cashless banking site where customers can meet a colleague face-to-face for banking support, as they would in a branch and without the need to travel.

"We are currently working with the local community to identify a suitable location and will announce details once confirmed.”


The bank's impending closure was met with disapproval from MP for Delyn, Rob Roberts who told The Leader he was 'extremely disappointed'.

Mr Roberts said: "I am extremely disappointed at Barclays' decision to close the Mold Branch.

"Only a couple of weeks ago when they announced the closure of other branches, it was confirmed to me that this did not include any branches from North Wales. This evidently wasn’t the case.

“I have written to Barclays outlining my feelings about the closure, and I will be working with Barclays to understand how they plan to support the affected customers and staff. 

"If anybody is impacted by this closure or has any concerns, please get in touch with me and my office will try and help provide the appropriate advice.”
