Desjardins will close three service centers in the Matabidia Valley in mid-July. The municipalities of Val-Bryant, Saint-Vianney, Lac or Saomon have been affected.
The closure will be effective from 12 July. Only counter services remained in these municipalities.
The Board of Directors of the Caisse Desjardins de la Vallée de la Matapédia made this decision due to the change in the members’ transaction habits as well as for security reasons as one employee was assigned to each service point.
The cash register indicates that the pandemic has precipitated changes in the habits of its customers. Thus, 97.5% of transfers occur somewhere other than the pay desk.
Agreements have been made with local businesses to allow cash withdrawals in these municipalities and training in the use of online services has been provided.
In addition, Caisse will offer a transfer service for those who wish to go to one of the five other financial institution counters at the MRC.
These closures come in addition to others that have occurred in recent weeks in Basse Saint Laurent. Four Desjardins service centers in Timiscoata closed their doors in May.
