HSBC officially closed their Saint John branch yesterday. HSBC cited, in this news article, that the reason for the [Canadian] closures was that “Across the industry, not just with HSBC, people are changing the way that they bank and that includes doing less in those bank branches. And at a certain point it just does not remain economical to keep a branch open.”

If you are not a client of HSBC’s, you may not have had reason to visit their Saint John location across from Market Square. The space is stunning! A rounded exterior wall, high ceilings and massive ornate columns make for a truly unique space.  The space available for lease includes 4,000 sq ft on the ground floor and up to 3,500 sq ft on the lower level (part of which is already finished).
