The Co-operative Bank today announced plans to close 37 branches, including seven in the North West.
The company will roll out a rebrand that will see the Britannia name disappear from the high street.
The North West branches are:
Crewe, Nantwich Rd - Britannia
Alderley Edge - Britannia
Preston - Britannia
Stockport - Britannia
Warrington - Britannia
Wigan - Britannia
Macclesfield - Co-operative
Branches are being shut where there is another close by - on average within half a mile and in some cases next door to each other - as part of an overhaul following its merger with Britannia building society in 2009.
But the group stressed a presence will be kept in towns and cities where branches are being closed.
The move will lead to 34 job losses, largely at a managerial level, while the bulk of the 188 staff employed across affected banks are being relocated to neighbouring branches.
