Huntingdon BMO closes its doors

Clients of the Bank of Montreal (BMO) in Huntingdon will now have to do their banking at the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield location or switch their accounts to one of the two remaining banking institutions in the town.

The Huntingdon BMO was closed on April 26. Shortly before 5 p.m. security professionals in a Garda truck pulled up to the Chateauguay Street location to empty the ATM. White coverings were installed over the Bank of Montreal signs, and the doors were locked.

All bank accounts, loans, and investments with the Huntingdon branch have automatically been transferred to the location on rue Nicholson in Valleyfield.

The decision to close the Huntingdon branch was made public last September when signs announcing the change and thanking customers for their loyalty were posted inside the bank. A public meeting took place on November 21, where clients were told the decision to close was final and the full-service ATM would be removed.

“The transition is going well,” said Jeff Roman, the director of Enterprise Media Relations with BMO. In an email, he confirmed that the “BMO team at our Valleyfield branch is welcoming customers from Huntingdon.”

According to Roman, the four employees from the Huntingdon branch have transitioned to the Valleyfield location or to other opportunities within the BMO network. He did not comment on the future of the now-empty building in Huntingdon, though it was previously revealed it would be put up for sale.
