To the Korumburra & District community,
As you would all be aware the Bendigo Bank has reversed its decision to close the Korumburra Branch, and as from 16 August the branch will be open 5 days a week, 10 am until 2 pm.
In the interim, Bendigo Bank is committed to meeting customers’ needs and is currently working through staffing changes. Keeping in mind that the branch was closing in August, the decision to remain open requires time to organise these changes.
The bank is endeavouring to have a highly skilled team based in Korumburra to deal with opening all types of accounts and other complex matters. Lending requirements will be met through a range of solutions whereby customers can either arrange a suitable time for the lender to come to Korumburra, can go to Leongatha or can even have a mobile lender come to them.
We certainly want the community to get behind the Bendigo Bank but there will be plenty of time to show your commitment once the staff changes have been completed.
Do not let this stop you from transferring to Bendigo now, but there will be simplified opportunities in the future.
For customers that already bank with Bendigo or are about to open up new accounts, please ensure your accounts are domiciled to the Korumburra branch no matter where the account was opened.
This is a simple matter of a data change, and can be done by the staff at the Korumburra branch the next time you are in town.
Thank you for your continued support,
The Bendigo Bank Community Working Group
