Bank of Liverpool and Martins

 

It’s an expensive business…

Like many of Martins Bank’s village sub-Branches, Hornby looks simply like the house next door because that’s exactly what it is. Business hours are different to those of the larger offices.  Some are open only one or two days each week, to serve the local area. Nevertheless, the staff are always happy go to extremes to be helpful… Hornby survives the merger, but is eventually closed by Barclays, who, having acquired so many tiny sub offices, face the task of consolidating their position – sub-Branches will only survive if they can pay for themselves through the business they generate. Sending two members of staff out twice a week to run a branch such as Hornby, which only opens for a total of nine hours, is an expensive business.
