AIB’s branch in Kells is to open on Saturdays to facilitate Danske Bank customers who must find a new banking provider following the announcement that it is discontinuing personal banking operations in Ireland this year. AIB Kells will be open for a period of five weeks until 8th March 2014. Opening times will be from 10am to 2pm and customers can either walk in or make an appointment.
AIB’s Regional Director for the Northeast region, Brendan O’Brien said: “Many people in the locality have been left without a banking provider following Danske’s decision to cease servicing personal customers. The staff in all our AIB branches in the region have been assisting customers over the past number of months to switch their accounts and this initiative aims to make the process as smooth as possible.
“Our staff are determined to make the transition as simple and as seamless as possible and on these Saturdays the focus will be around switching of current accounts, account opening and general product advice. In addition the AIB Quick Banking facilities will be available for customers to use as normal.
Customers can find out more information by dropping into any AIB branch, calling the dedicated Danske switching helpline at 1800-234-100 (Phone line opening hours are: Mon-Fri: 8am - 9pm. Sat & Sun: 9am - 5pm); by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting the Current Account Switching Pages on www.aib.ie.
