PRESS RELEASE: Absa extends its trading hours


Absa Group today announced that its branches located within shopping malls will be offering extended trading hours and opening their doors for Saturday and Sunday banking already from 8 December 2012 until 6 January 2013.
Absa Head of Retail Markets Arrie Rautenbach says Saturday and Sunday trading during the festive season is all about offering greater convenience to customers.
"Absa has a deliberate strategy and commitment to making the lives of all our customers much easier. This is why we are extending our trading hours and opening our doors for Saturday and Sunday banking," Rautenbach says.
"This is just but one of the things that we are doing to meet the banking needs of all our customers. This year, we've taken the decision to eliminate inter-account transfer and internal debit order fees to other Absa Accounts with effect from 1 January 2013. We enter the festive season having introduced Potentiate, a first-of-its-kind financial solution for qualified individuals that includes an Apple iPad with a free data bundle offer and has one of the world's most technologically advanced cards," he continues.
Most recently the bank announced a partnership with a local innovations company to enable businesses and entrepreneurs on-the-go across South Africa to accept debit or credit card payments using their smartphones or tablets through a world first, plug-in device called 'The Payment Pebble.'
"This is all in line with Absa's drive to ensure that we continue to be accessible and to offer convenience in our quest to become the "Go-To" Bank for our valued customers in all our markets. We realise that the demand for access to financial services and products on non-traditional banking days during the festive break increases," adds Rautenbach.
Customers will be welcomed between 8:00 am and 2pm on Saturdays and 9am and 12pm on Sundays. Selected outlets will maintain their existing operating hours during weekdays (Mondays to Fridays).
