A TOWN'S Yorkshire Bank is no more after being rebranded as part of a national programme.

The former Stockton Yorkshire Bank has been rebranded as Virgin Money, along with branches in Middlesbrough and Hartlepool.

The company is rebranding its network of Clydesdale Bank, Yorkshire Bank and Virgin Money sites to the new Virgin Money branding as part of a multi-million pound programme which is expected to be completed by the spring.

Paul Titterton, head of personal distribution at Virgin Money said: “These are exciting times for the Virgin Money store in Stockton as it becomes one of the first stores in our nationwide network to move across to the Virgin Money brand.

"While it brings an end to the Yorkshire Bank brand in Stockton, we’re delighted to be moving to the single Virgin brand, which is well known for its great customer service and innovation.”

Virgin Money will write to customers in advance of their branch being rebranded.

Each rebranded store will offer full banking services, increasing the network of available stores to existing Yorkshire Bank, Clydesdale Bank and Virgin Money customers.
