So, now that most restrictions have been lifted on ALL (non essential) retailers reopening their doors to the general public, why is Isle of Man Bank STILL only open 10am til 2pm at the most unfriendly, in terms of parking facilities site....on the corner of Athol Street!?!? Who in their right mind even conceived this as a 'good idea' in the very beginning of this 'lockdown, when obviously, in terms of location, Regent Street should have been the obvious choice. I arrived on this Athol Street corner at 9:25 to deposit a tax return cheque and a small amount of cash to find 3 people ahead of me. In first place, a gentleman who had been there since 9am, possibly assuming the IOM Bank, the only branch open, would at least have reasonable opening times and hours for those many more customers now back at work. But, No.....why??? In the fairly recent past, Isle of Man Bank downsized by closing branches in an effort to save costs and provide their shareholders with even fatter profits, as if those profits weren't already fat enough, all this at the expense of their loyal, long time, usually elderly customers. Take Laxey as a prime example for the businesses and those living and working there, they closed the branch. Oh well there's always Onchan...not for long, they then closed that branch. Oh well, I suppose there's always Prospect Terrace.....not for long, yup, they closed that too, professing that, hey most people now bank on-line. Where was there ANY proof of THAT claim?! And through all of this IOMG sat back watching, but, saying nothing, like the Manx Gas situation for many years....S.N.A.F.U. ,
