Maskey confident for Finaghy despite bank closures
Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey said he is disappointed at the planned closure of the First Trust and Danske bank branches in Finaghy but is confident local traders will continue to make a success of the area.
The South Belfast MLA said:
“The announced closure of the Danske Bank and First Trust branches at Finaghy will be a blow to the bustling retail hub at Finaghy Village.
“However, I am confident the local traders, who have recently formed their first business organisation, will continue to push forward with their ambitious plans to make the area an even busier hub of endeavour and community.
“Key to the success of businesses is the support of local people and I would urge locals to continue to shop local and ensure their money stays in the economy. It is now imperative that the banks move quickly to ensure alternative tenants are found for these key sites."
