Construction work on the newest addition to Nuneaton’s Ropewalk Shopping Centre continues.
The new Barclays bank continues to take shape at the main Queens Road entrance to the mall.
It is in readiness for when the new branch opens its doors next month.
The bank has now officially left its former home, the hugely prominent Grade II listed building in Market Place.
Its last day of trade from historic building, which is now on the market, was on Friday, April 9, and customers have to wait until May for the new branch to open.
A sign previously on the window said: “Your Nuneaton branch will be moving on Friday, 9 April 2021.
“We will be closing on Friday 9 April 2021 and will re-open at our new home on Monday 10 May 2021.”
It goes on to add: “Your new branch will have a new look and a feel along with the latest banking technology.”
As we reported in our newsletter, news about the bank’s move was first revealed when a planning application was submitted to Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council.
The application requested permission for the bank to move to the unit 15A, the former home of Utopia clothing, which faces onto Queens Road.
Utopia moved into the former Topshop and Topman unit within the shopping centre, leaving its old unit empty.
