Thursday 4th April, 2019-Antigua Commercial Bank (ACB) says it will be restoring onsite services at the original Barbuda Agency location by June 2019.
The bank says commencement of restoration works on the building will start in April; and the estimated time of completion is eight weeks. The bank’s branch sustained damaged during the passage of Hurricane Irma in 2017. It has been closed since that time.
General Manager of ACB, Joanna Charles is quoted as stating, “Our Bank remains fully committed to providing banking services to our loyal customers in Barbuda. We sincerely apologise for the delay in reopening the Agency; however it was necessary that we took time to re-think our strategy to ensure that reopening will be mutually beneficial to all stakeholders. It was also necessary to ensure that the services such as telephone and internet that support banking today were stable and reliable.
“Once the restoration and the ancillary works are completed, we will commence a limited service in the first instance,” Charles notes.
