Today the new renovated bank branch of the Caja Rural reopens in La Herradura. Meanwhile over in Almuñécar, one of the two branches closed.
The new office, which you can find at Promenade Andrés Segovia 22, has been undergoing renovations since June, according to the branch manager, Antonio Montes.
“The new branch has an area of 200 sq / m, two ATMs, three digital information panels and an access ramp for those with mobility problems,” he explained. There are four members of staff there: a manager, deputy manager and two clerks .
The premises used to belong to Bank of Santander and before that popular Bank.
Which brings us onto the branch that was closed down in Almuñécar, because the La Herradura manager came from there, where he occupied the same post. The previous manage of the La Herradura Rural Box, Pilar Álvarez has been transferred to Vélez Benaudalla.
The trouble with the closure of the branch on the Andalusia Avenue is that anybody who had an account there (me, for example) have had their 20-digit bank account number changed, which is a veritable pain. Furthermore, you now have clients from both banks trying to be attended at the remaining one, which is in front of the old municipal market. There is also just the one Rural Box ATM for the whole of Almuñécar now.
