Pretoria - People reacted with shock, sympathy and criticism to Standard Bank’s decision to close more than 100 of its branches across the country.
The bank is expected to close 104 branches as early as this month after initially announcing that it would close 91 branches.
However, to some social media users this news had not been welcomed as they feared that people could lose jobs.
Gauteng is the province that will be hardest hit as the lists of branches due to be axed included nearly 50% of the branches in the province.
Tshwane branches included on the list included Arcadia, Hillcrest Boulevard, Irene Mall, Lyttelton, Menlyn, Menlyn Maine, Rosslyn, Unisa, Soshanguve Crossing and Wonderboom Junction.
