Tesco Bank is set to close all its current accounts – because customers are no longer using them.
Bosses for the banking arm of the retailer say so few people are using them as a main account thet are now planning to shut them in November.
It has been reported that there are 213,000 personal current accounts.
Tesco Bank chief executive Gerry Mallon said: “With so few of our current account customers using it as their primary account we want to support them to find a suitable alternative dependent on their circumstances.
“Customers who have been using our current account as a savings pot may be better suited to one of our tailored savings products.
“And shoppers who are looking for a payment option which allows them to continue collecting Clubcard points in and out of Tesco may want to consider Tesco Clubcard Pay or a Tesco Bank credit card.”
BirminghamLive reports how it follows department store M&S, which is closing its current accounts in August and has already shut its in-store branches.
